3-0 out of 5 stars good text
T.R. does a great job in painting a word picture of his safari. You can almost see it. If your sensitive to racism you may be offended by some of his comments. I'm sure he meant no harm after all it was written a century ago.
The big thing for this publisher is the picture reproduction in the book, it is down right poor. That is why I rated it only three stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars Perfect reading for downtime on your safari
I had just finished reading Douglas Brinkley's new The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America and decided to take Roosevelt's African Game Trails: An Account of the African Wanderings of an American Hunter-Natrualist on my own safari to East Africa this summer. The book is a collection of articles he wrote during his 1909-10 safari for Scribners.

One of the questions I had before I read the book is whether it would actually provide interesting insights into Roosevelt and Africa, or whether it would just relate how Roosevelt shot up wildlife. I found the book to be a mix of both. Roosevelt is a keen observer of wildlife and provides many insights into animals that biologists consider accurate today (and that I observed on my trip). His discussion of which of the Big 5 (Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Rhinos, and Cape Buffalo) is the most dangerous is interesting and he reflects upon his own experiences to conclude that it depends on the situation. There are also a few memorable stories, such as the time when his fellow hunters had to throw several spears into a Lion to stop its charge. It is also simply fun to see a former U.S. president in all sorts of crazy situations (the book has great black & white photos from the trip).

However, the most interesting aspect of the book is its insight into Roosevelt himself. He frequently calls indigenous Africans savages and praises European settlers. From these remarks, it is clear that he saw Europeans in Africa in much the same manner as he saw the American West - a new frontier to be settled on behalf of civilization. He isn't racist - at least according to the standards of his time (in the U.S., he was actually quite progressive on race) - but rather reflects a Social Darwinist view of humanity.

This is a long book (over 500 pages in my version) and it seems long after a while since it generally involves the accumulated killing of animals. However, you have to remember that it was originally written as a series of articles for Scribners and was not meant to be read in one sitting. I think it works well if you read it over a few days or weeks. I read mine during the long drives from one park to the next during my safari in East Africa. That way, you won't get fatigued by the hunting stories.

One final note: this book is crying out for an annotated edition. I think it would be great for some conservation biologist to expound upon Roosevelt's observations of African wildlife. While Roosevelt gets many things right, we have also benefitted from a century of field research in East Africa. For example, Roosevelt at first is adamant that there is only one species of Rhinoceros, with the Black Rhino being the common form and White Rhinos a sub-species aberration (although by the end of the book he sounds less sure). Of course, today we consider these two distinct species and in fact the Black Rhino is far less common. I would also be interested in learning whether his observations of the African tribes were accurate. Alas, this is the work of a future edition. While you're waiting, you can take this edition of African Game Trails with you on your next safari.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great story of a great man
I have been interested in reading about Theodore Roosevelt for some time.I finally got around to reading this book.It is rather long, but it is great on adventure.He spent I think over a year in Africa hunting almost every kind of animal.I was also interested in the guns he used because I have a business card that was given to me by my Grandmother that she says was one of her relatives.It is a card that says T GLAHN & SONS OF PHILADELPHIA, PA. ENGRAVERS OF THE ROOSEVELT GUN.I have no idea which gun, but it is a great keepsake from my Grandmother.Anyway I found this to be a real great book, I wish I could find more like it.Thanks.

2-0 out of 5 stars Interesting but too much drudgery.
Great descriptions of some fine hunts against dangerous game and great commentary on the local human wildlife so to speak.It's unfortunate that liberal revisionists have tried to paint a vision of Africa that simply is not so nor ever was.Unfortunately the book is filled with too much 'Today I shot this, that and the other thing' which becomes really damned dull after awhile.

2-0 out of 5 stars No Title
Soooo glad to have finished this one.Written in 1909, 1910, immediately after Roosevelt left the Presidency and went to Africa in March, 1909, for the Smithsonian, to shoot a zillion animals and bring back their hides and heads for the collections.He went with his son Kermit, who shot most of the very fuzzy black and white pictures in the book, and more animals even than his father.He was about 20 then.It is a picture of colonial East Africa at that time, and of Western man's thinking about the black natives, who were "children". Thankfully, that sort of mind-set has disappeared.But you can see here that Roosevelt had it in spades.Too bad some of his bearers did not write their own accounts. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars with caveat
I will first state that I have read numbers of Mr. Roosevelt's work and I have a fond affection for his ability.
In stating that, the War of 1812 by his hand is not so much a history, but a complete (and needed) ripping apart of the British smear machine against Americans by a Mr. James.
A modern happening now is the smear against Gov. Sarah Palin by the press and lefists distorting every last detail of her life. This is what the British did to Americans in either they were unqualified or according to James it was British citizens who won the war for America against their own nation as Americans were not up to it.

This Mr. Roosevelt rips to shreds with a doctorate in details that he repeats in a style like in Winning of the West.
My highest affection for Mr. Roosevelt as a historian and writer though when he waxes poetic as in the Wilderness Hunter in hunting moose. This he accomplishes in the first chapter and the last chapter in the Battle of New Orleans wonderfully.
Readers should be warned you are going to have to know luff, tack, weather gauge and various nautical terms as mizzen and spar as sometimes it is difficult to keep track of the ships and even the soldiers on each side.

Mr. Roosevelt has fine maps his wife exclaimed in him drawing little ships when they had dinner. His drawings help immensely even in his positioning the sails.
The greatest shame is our children are deprived of the history Mr. Roosevelt describes on the Great Lakes in some of the the greatest battles in history occur there in Capt. Perry and MacDonough. MacDonough and his squandron is an epic tale of bravery, against all odds and Christian virtue in winning the battle of Lake Champlain.

Teddy could have included 500 more pages on Perry, MacDonough, Hull and Porter who were absolutely the equal of the greatest seafaring soul of all time in Sir. Francis Drake.
As Mr. Roosevelt notes being Dutch, how much it makes the veins of an American swell with pride in knowing these men and how much equal our English brethern served with distinction and honor.

This is a fine book, but it is not a child's story in an easy read. It is technical and I highly doubt the good reviews in the New York Times understood a word of the nautical tide.

I will compliment the two forwards in this book as they are written not by the typical liberal historian who would not understand the meaning of the warriors of 1812. They do a splendid job in being interesting unlike the judgmental type who did the forward on Patton.

I hope that Amazon would start carrying versions of the books Mr. Roosevelt notes in this history in James Fenimore Cooper, Capt. Porter and Adm. Faragut's memoirs in volume so one would not have to search for scarce books.
Mr. Roosevelt proved as a young 20 year old he was equal to any history phd. His work is worth the struggle in refuting the British smears of that era.
God bless

5-0 out of 5 stars A True Classic
In my view a "true classic" tells not just the story that is the subject of the book, but the language used tells you about both the author and the time.Here, one of the United States' greatest leaders, Theodore Roosevelt, who subsequently became President, does just that.

2-0 out of 5 stars A Classic Ruided
This Echo Library edtion is a great disappointment. It is riddled with mistakes; words run together, first letter of many words missing, placement of footnote numbers incorrect. There are many different formats used for tables. Their decision to remove the original illustrations and diagrams was a major mistake. It is obivious that a proper proof reading was not cared out. The responsible person for this production has a lot to answer for.

In my opinion this edition should never have come to print. It is no longer a useful reference to the serious student nor is it much good for the casual interested reader. ... Read more
