About this book

Kenneth Gandar Dower (1908-1944) wrote a classic African expedition memoir based on his adventures in search of a beast known only from rumors and stories, a lion with a spotted pelt. Gandar Dower describes the many obstacles incurred with difficult terrain and bad weather in Kenya's Aberdare Mountains. His findings are still considered significant within cryptozoological studies, though we are still left with many questions about whether the marozi is a distinct species or not. The Spotted Lion was published in 1937. Kenneth Gandar Dower was killed in 1944 when the ship he was traveling on was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine, leaving behind the fascinating legacy of this mystery feline.
