Biography of Joseph Richard “Dick” Prickett - Soldier, Forester, Hunter and Conservationist.
"We both took aim and fired together for the heart, not once but over and over again. A feeling of hopelessness came over me, a feeling that we were up against something that just would not go down. Then he toppled over. The bushes on the slope gave way under his weight and he rolled over and over towards us. Again we both had to jump, and the great body of the dead buffalo came to rest between us. Solemnly I place the last bullet, the eleventh, behind his ear."
For many, experiences like this one are pure nightmares, but to Richard Joseph Prickett it was just a normal days work in a life that has now vanished from Africa forever.

”I really enjoyed this book. I knew Dick Prickett quite well because his son, John, was my best friend at school for a couple of years. I was quite often a visitor to his place, as John was to mine.” - John Angus Welford.
