Hunting in Africa: Invisible Guides, Big Game, and Bigger Egos
Details the history of foreign big-game hunting from the middle of the nineteenth century through the colonial period, closing with the safari's popularity in Hollywood films. Cleveland discusses evolving conservation policies privileging tourist-hunters while rendering indigenous populations, so vital to the colonial safari industry, exploitable and invisible. Explores how the writings of hunter-authors like Cornwallis Harris (The Wild Sports of Southern Africa, 1838) and Hemingway's (Green Hills of Africa, "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber," and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro") not only solidified their reputations and celebrity status but spurred touristic interest in Africa.
