Doesn't sound stupid, timbo. I only know 'cos my mom's a librarian. :wink:

ISBN = International Standard Book Number. It's usually on the back of the book, above the barcode. It will be something like ISBN 1-876093-10-9.

Timbo, if you give the ISBN number it makes it easier for other members to find the book if they wish to buy it.

I can recommend "Game Ranger on Horseback" and "Bushlife of a Game Warden" by Nick Steele , who was one of Dr Ian Players contemporaries .

Was lucky enough to spot Harry Wolhuters book "Memories of a Game Ranger" in a 2nd hand book shop in Durbanville during December. I bought it on the spot. It was the soft cover not the hard cover.

I finished the book in a couple of days and it was interesting to compare conservation methods then to conservation methods now. Huge difference.

Very interesting book. A worth while read.

I found it at kalahari at http://www.kalahari.net/books/A-Game-Ra ... 02855.aspx, but with a different ISBN: 9781868422265 :hmz:

This book is E X C E L L E N T ! I bought it for my dad, who eviscerated it! I would think that he would at least ration himself, but nooo...
Well, fortunately for me he finished it quickly before I was standing in a pool - I was salivating; and it was such a nice read.

I loved every moment of it.

Hi,

Just picked up on this thread now... I read "A game ranger remembers" a year or two back and to be honest I wasn't that impressed. Maybe the incidents were more isolated than what they came across, but it seemed that everytime something stuck its head out from behind a tree it got shot!

:sniper: :sniper: :sniper: :sniper: :sniper:

If I wanted to read a western I would have bought one...
It did make for an interesting read but I won't be reading it again....

DGK...

I bought all of Jan Roderigues books directly from him last year. Very smooth transaction and received in Australia in absolutely great nick.

His website is Books From the Wild

A not so well known book : ISBN 0 86954 122 6
"Lion" by GL Smuts .
He was involved in a research project in KNP on Zebra amongst other animals as part of his postgraduate studies , and returned to KNP permanently in the early '70's as a researcher on predator - prey relationships .

I quote from memory as I do not have the book with me ...
G.L. (Butch) Smuts relates his abovementioned book in one of many interesting stories how while alone and tracking lion in the area close to the Nwanadzi /Satara road his Land Rover collided with a tree stump hidden in the long grass .
With the sun low in the sky and the vehicle immobilised with badly bent steering arm (and no radio) he could proceed no further so decided to walk the distance to Nwanedzi , about 12 km along the tar road .
By the time he reached the tarred tourist road the sun had allready set and with little chance of passing traffic , as the tourists were allready in camp , he briskly walked , his senses in high alert , frequently stopping to listen for animals , as after a short while it was pitchdark .
Around 11 that night he closed the gate of the rangers compound at Nwanedzi .
