The Wanderings of an Elephant Hunter is the story of Walter Dalrymple Maitland Bell, a famous big game hunter at the turn of the century in East Africa. 'Karamojo Bell, ' as he became known, devised many original techniques to seek out and capture his quarry, including a difficult rifle shot from a diagonal angle, later dubbed 'The Bell Shot.' Wanderings details Bell's ingenious ivory-hunting methodology, as well as his many memorable encounters on safari.

This revised edition of Bell's bestselling book includes footnotes and images showing the ivory trade in East Africa.
