More than any other individual, James Stevenson-Hamilton can be credfited with the creation of the Kruger National Park in South Affica. In 1902, when the South African War ended, Stevenson-Hamilton swapped his military career for the more uncertain calling of 'game warden'. Under his supervision the small, neglected and war-ravaged Sabi Game Reserve expanded in stature and size. By the time he retired in 1946, the Kruger National Park had become as one of the great national parks of the world. This biography examines the diversity of his ninety-year lifespan, a task made possible by his meticulous journal which - like many Victorians - he maintained almost every day from the age of 13 until just a week before his death in 1957.
