Lion-shooting in Sudan is the central theme of this book. It is a story of a trip made by the author to Dafour in 1937, at that time a little-known part of Sudan. He gives excellent descriptions of life in the desert, and accounts of Arab life and customs, with quick and witty sketches of various native characters with whom he came into contact. Finally, there are some richly humorous chapters on “a question of frontier” describing a not-altogether frictionless visit to the frontiers of French Equatorial.
