Excerpt from Two African Trips: With Notes and Suggestions on Big Game Preservation in Africa The descriptive chapters in this volume deal with the modest events of two holiday trips in Africa, one in British East Africa, the other in the Soudan. In each case I spent a little over a month in a good game-district, shooting, photographing, and travelling gently from camp to camp. These pages are little more than a transcription of my field-tes which I have put into a permanent form for the benefit of friends who are interested in the same subjects as I am. With these I have combined reproductions from some of my photographs which seemed best to illustrate the daily incidents of such journeys and the characteristics of the people and wild animals which I encountered. In fact, it would be better described as a picture-book than a volume of travels. It is obvious that these brief journeys, undertaken solely for pleasure, gave me title to speak with authority on many subjects affecting those great territories, the most recent claims pegged out by British energy.
