Hi eveyone,

I just read a very good book called The Ivory Trail by TV Bulpin. It is the story of legendary hunter/poacher 'Bvekenya'. It tells of his hunting expeditions that revolved around Crook's Corner, where he could take refuge from any of the 3 county's police.

A must read :thumbs_up:

I think that Bulpin remain one of the most readable historians, ever. He knows how to combine good research with entertainment. I have not yet had the pleasure of reading this book and will certainly add it onto my reading list.

Thank you.

ABE doesn't list a copy.
And it is not available on Kindle.
So I will have to keep a look out.
