From the Foreword- "Cumming's travels began at Grahamstown on October 23, 1843, when he departed for the northern horizon. In all, he would make five trips in search of big game, and when he left Africa in 1848, he not only regretted leaving, but anticipated a future return which was, in event, never to come. But between the coming and the going, he enjoyed enough adventure to last a lifetime."
