WHITE HUNTERS The Golden Age of African Safaris

by | Read by Robert Whitfield [Simon Vance]

History • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

Say the name Denys Finch Hatton with an English accent like Whitfield’s, and this listener is already seeing Africa. Karen Blixen’s lover, the aristocratic white hunter played by Robert Redford in OUT OF AFRICA, was actually quite bald. While perhaps more complete than the casual listener requires, the book stunningly recreates that lost Eden of gallantry, endurance, and sudden death: “. . . the four-hundred- pound cat knocked Pullman over like a sack of cotton, and his rifle flew from his grasp.” Teddy Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and the Prince of Wales all have cameos, but true nobility here lies with the big five: Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Buffalo and Rhinoceros.
