A Sentimental Safari by Kermit Roosevelt (1963) is the story of how three Roosevelts rediscovered their respective grandfathers. Kermit Roosevelt, son of Kermit and grandson of Theodore Roosevelt, retraced the trails of the great African hunt which his grandfather and his father had engaged in during ten eventful months, from April 1909 to February 1910. When his own two sons became old enough, he began to organize the hunt. Life magazine sent a photographer with them on the safari. Winchester Arms, which had supplied Theodore Roosevelt's famous "Medicine Gun for Lions", supplied a modern battery of rifles. So father and sons boned up on 'African Game Trails' and set out to retrace its steps. During their weeks in Africa, they rediscovered old trails and old companions of that earlier hunt.
