Zara´s Tales: Perilous Escapades in Equatorial Africa - neues Buch

ISBN: 9780679426592

ID: 865240094

From adventurer, explorer, photographer, writer, pied piper Peter Beard--eleven irresistible tales, told to his daughter in his tented encampment at Hog Ranch, Kenya, about life, about living, about Africa. He writes of the East African hills he came to know so well over four decades, where time slows to infinity in a great bottomless, bottle green underwater world . . . about Nairobi in the 1950s, still a quaint, eccentric pioneer town, full of characters of all stripes and tribes, where rhinoceros roamed the streets and local residents went to the movies in pajamas. He writes of the camp he built twelve miles outside of Nairobi so that he would never be off safari, a forty-acre patch of bush called Hog Ranch (abutting Karen Blixen´s plantation), named for the families of warthogs who wandered into camp, a camp populated with waterbuck, suni, dik-diks, leopard, giraffe, and occasionally lion and buffalo. In ´´Big Pig at Hog Ranch,´´ Beard tells the story of Thaka (translation from the Kikuyu: ´´handsome stud´´), Hog Ranch´s number-one, fearsome, 300-pound warthog, who came into camp and dropped to the ground happy for a vigorous tummy rub, and who one night, ´´lying in his favorite position, munching on corn and barbeque chicken,´´ was encroached upon by a bristly haired, wild-looking boar hog. All three hundred pounds of Thaka exploded straight at the hairy intruder, the two brutish, bony heads crashing together thundering through the camp and Peter witnessed the unleashed power--the bullish strength--of the wild pig . . . In ´´Roping Rhino,´´ Beard tells of his first job in Africa, rounding up and relocating rhinos for the Kenya Game Department with his cohort and neighbor, aweather-beaten native of Old Kenya who thrived on danger and refused to bathe--and of the enormous silver-backed rhino bull that became their Moby Dick . . . He writes of his quest to photograph overpopulated and habitat-destroying elephants for Life magazine on the ev Offers a memoir of the author´s life in Kenya on his forty-acre Hog Ranch encampment, describing his hunting experiences, and his encounters with its animal inhabitants, including the legendary man-eating lions of Tsavo.
