From the moment legendary professional hunter Harry Selby welcomes the author to Botswana for his first safari, the reader is immersed in a grand adventure and spine-tingling stories of the bush: a tracker attacked by a leopard and a magnificently maned lion measuring over ten feet, for example. This is the story of a novice who went to Africa only to have his dreams shaken, yet rose from despair because of exceptional mentoring and guidance from renowned professional hunters Ole Man Wally Johnson and Willie Engelbrecht.It was Willie Engelbrecht who encouraged Christenson to start hunting in Tanzania with PH George Angelides, so after three dramatic safaris in Botswana, Christenson plied his skills in Tanzania the first year the country reopened to hunting. There, Christenson not only took the "standard" safari for elephant, buffalo, leopard, and lion, but he also went on pioneering hunts for rarities such as the Abbott duiker, a hunt that is much like catching fog in a narrow-necked bottle. Not all hunts were successful but each safari was.The reader gets some of the most interesting pieces of insider information on the trackers and PHs, including the story of how George Angelides was mauled by a wounded leopard and barely survived to tell the tale or how a tracker-turned-game warden in Tanzania caught a policeman with the second largest set of tusks ever taken from that country.From the Okavango to the Plains of East Africa contains many dramatic accounts, including the first successful leopard track in the Kalahari.The book contains adventures of record trophies taken and traversing the wilderness after those that got away. It is a story about the amazing bonds formed between a client and his professional hunters, and the hunter's respect for the African land and its people.
