Beschreibung

This gripping book, which was first published in 1927, preserves a series of letters written by the author, George Eastman, founder of the Eastman Kodak Company. The letters chronicle Eastman's adventures on a hunting trip into the interior of Africa that he made during the summer of 1926 with Daniel E. Pomeroy and Dr. Audley D. Stewart. The party departed New York for the African continent on March 13, 1926. Landing at Mombasa, they proceeded to Nairobi, where they established headquarters, making from there various long trips into the hunting regions of the interior. Stewart and Eastman returned to Rochester on October 24, 1926.During this trip, Eastman also met Martin and Osa Johnson, the American adventurers and documentary filmmaker couple that captured the public's imagination through their films and books of adventure in exotic, faraway lands in the first half of the 20th century. The couple were on a four-year expedition to track the lion across Kenyan veld to his lair, footage of which was later used to make their 1928 black-and-white silent documentary film, Simba: The King of the Beasts.Beautifully illustrated throughout with photographs taken on the trip.
