J A Hunter Books

All J A Hunter books are highly sought after classic African hunting volumes. John Alexander Hunter (1887 - 1963) was born in Scotland and became a 'white hunter' in Africa from the early 1900s through to the 1950s.

Captain A T A Ritchie, Game Warden of Kenya, wrote in his foreword in 'Hunter':

"It may well seem...that J.A. has always been given the 'dirty end of the stick.' This is true, and has been because he has wanted it, and because he has been fitted for it by his great qualities: unrivaled experience and knowledge of animal behavior, surpassing skill and speed in handling firearms, and most importantly perhaps, an equable temperament and iron nerve, a formidable combination..." "..I can pay no greater tribute to his prowess than is provided by the fact that he is still alive..."
