Up For Sale Today is. The Wanderings of an Elephant Hunter. Bell was one of the premier "great white hunters" who ventured into unknown parts of savage Africa. He learned how to best deal with the various native tribes in short order, which is the principle reason he achieved his "fame" and successes in the bush. Bell admired Selous' hunting and communication methods with Africans in areas where no "white man" has ever been seen.
And, he had the wherewithal to put to paper his exceptionally dangerous adventures, so others interested in African big game hunting and travelling could learn from his successes and failures. This book is very well written and is much easier to read (editing of the digital scan from print is nearly flawless) than most of the historic African hunting books on digital format.
Also, he writes with a hint of humor even in the face of danger, which makes this read quite entertaining. I highly recommend this volume for anyone who enjoys studying the ways and means of big game hunting in the "golden age" of the Dark Continent. Walter Dalrymple Maitland Bell (18801954), known as Karamojo Bell, was a Scottish adventurer, big game hunter in East Africa, soldier, decorated fighter pilot, sailor, writer, and painter. Famous as one of the most successful ivory hunters of his time, Bell was an advocate of accurate shot placement with smaller calibre rifles, over the heavy large-bore rifles his contemporaries used for big African game. He improved his hunting skills by the dissection and study of the skulls of elephants he shot.
He perfected a technique of shooting elephants from the extremely difficult position, diagonally behind the target; this shot became known as the Bell Shot. Although chiefly known for his exploits in Africa, Bell also traveled to North America and New Zealand, sailed windjammers, saw service in South Africa during the Boer War, flew in the Royal Flying Corps in East Africa, Greece and France during World War I.
