    The classic "Man-eaters of Tsavo is now avalible on-line, a great read for anybody who has not read the book.

    Good book By Mr Patterson, he also wrote another book called "In the grip of Nyika"

    They also made a film about the Maneaters of Tsavo, called the "Ghost and the Darkness" about 10 years ago with Michael Douglas. Not a bad film although Mr Douglas rather spoiled it as a Professional Hunter and the storyline towards the end was a bit off line from real events.

    Have you ever known a film to stay rigidly true to the book?

    Val Kilmer played Col. John Henry Patterson. With the delightful Emily Mortimer as Mrs Patterson.

    You cant, they are collectors items these days. Mind you one of my small past times is collecting old sporting books and I managed to buy a copy for 50 from a second hand bookshop a few years back. Just managed to pick up another two books of late about hill stalking, both printed prior to 1890.
