Blurb:  CPJ Ionides was a fearless snake catcher in East Africa in the 1950s. It is disconcerting therefore to learn of his activities as a poacher of endangered game species which is totally incompatible with his profession as a game ranger. One gets the impression that he pursued both of these professions more for monetary reward than his love of nature.
However this is an essential and fascinating read for anyone who is intrigued by snakes.
