Came across this hour-long video of Ruark's three-month Kenyan safari, 1953.

Pretty terrific!

Ya, I've been reading Ruark since I was a kid in the 1960's. Love his stuff. Have several of his books still. Let a few get away.

That video though... I didn't know it existed. It was almost like meeting the man. Dang.

They were some of the first "big" books i read as a kid. Elmer Kieth, Capstick, and Ruark were my dads favorites and were always laying about. i was riveted by the thoughts of safari in Africa. It is my greatest dream to hunt those lands and hopefully will be able to before I can't

It was a fascinating look at a world that is no longer available. A pleasant hour invested in dreaming of what once was.

Gonna put that on the big tv.

I’m reading White Hunters by Brian Herne right now. I was born a little too late.
