Annotation: Alexander Lake was a big game hunter, but a hunter with a difference. At a time -- the late 1940s and early 1950s -- when hunters were selling macho yarns filled to overflowing with false bravado, Lake began debunking all the myths that had been making the rounds. Indeed, when Killers in Africa was first published, the advertising tagline was "The truth about animals lying in wait and hunters lying in print!" This book, drawn from a number of Lake's magazine articles written while in Africa, covers the animals he hunted, species by species, all told with a "round the campfire" feel.
