It is with feelings of the greatest diffidence that I place the following pages before the public; but those of my friends who happen to have heard of my rather unique experiences in the wilds have so often urged me to write an account of my adventures, that after much hesitation I at last determined to do so.

The Man-Eaters of Tsavo
Average rating
5 / 5
January 23rd, 2014
This is a fantastic read for both history and adventure lovers. While the story has been made into several films, I felt that the true story written by Patterson himself was far more exciting than Val Kilmer's interpretation. Bonus info: check out the Stuff You Missed In History Class two-part podcast to listen to their examination of both the events themselves, and the science behind these man-eaters. Both lions are on display in the Chicago Field Museum by the way, in case you wanted to take an awesome nerdy road trip!
