The Battle for Serengeti

Myles Turner's posthumous memoirs, edited by Brian Jackman and enhanced by Bob Kuhn's splendid drawings, rhapsodize the birth pangs of and interminable assaults on Tanzania's incomparable Serengeti National Park. All who are familiar with the Serengeti will find their appreciation of it amplified by Turner's intimate account of his experience as its deputy chief game warden from November 1956 to April 1972. Those for whom it remains a dream destination may embrace it vicariously as he immerses them by small plane, Land Rover, and on foot in its rich fabric of life. Zealous and unapologetic in his defense of its wildlife against poachers, bitter in his repudiation of the killing of its animals by scientific investigators, Turner was emotionally conjoined with the Serengeti. While the book's two maps are inadequate for locating many of the places detailed in Turner's recollections, referencing them affords the reader a general orientation in accompanying him throughout the park. This enthralling book conveys every sensation of what has justifiably been called "the last place on earth."

Best Book Ever

This book has got to be the best book i've ever read. A true life story, Serengeti Years has inspired me to visit Tanzania and see its wildlife. Mr. Turner is a game warden in the Serengeti and shares his life with you in this wonderful book.
