Wild Beasts and their Ways Reminiscences of Europe, Asia, Africa and America by Sir Samuel W. Baker Originally published in 1890. Baker travelled worldwide, hunting large and dangerous game. He was an authority on rifles and their use on dangerous game, and in this book he gives us the benefit of his experience. Early in the book is a description of an attack by a tiger; a subject that is on the minds of quite a few people this week. The entire book is presented here in plain text format; it may be read online or copied and pasted into any text program.
