Tales Of An African Vet from the Author: Roy Aronson. When do you watch a wild animal suffer and let nature take its course, and when do you intervene? In his more than twenty-five years as an African vet, Roy Aronson has tended to a two-ton rhino that lost its horn after colliding with a concrete wall, facilitated the miraculous recovery of a squirrel monkey, performed eye surgery on a lion out in the bush, and treated a hedgehog that had been mauled by a dog. He has also worked with some of Africa’s most dedicated conservationists and wildlife veterinarians. He has witnessed their passion and bravery and been with them when hard decisions had to be made. Tales of an African Vet brings together Dr. Aronson’s adventures in a rare behind-the-scenes look at those who treat wild animals in their natural habitats. Whether you are drawn to outdoor adventure stories, African wildlife, or the veterinarian’s trade, you will find this a riveting read, filled with rich insights into both the animal and human cultures of Africa.

From Afrikaner To Zebra A Vet S Life from the Author: Charles Kingsley. “You are so lucky ! I always wanted to be a vet!“ was a recurring statement at any and every gathering which I ever attended. Yes I was lucky, or maybe I was a bit more determined than most. Thank goodness for a good sense of humour and a positive attitude to life, if a bit cynical. I learnt to accept with a good grace being woken for the third time many nights to see “emergencies”, most of which could easily have waited until daylight. I got over the “God Syndrome” and the inevitable loss of some patients only to have the immense satisfaction of pulling through some very diffi cult cases.

The Trouble With Lions from the Author: Jerry C. Haigh. The trouble with lions is that while you are conducting a pregnancy test, you need to be equally, if not more, aware of what you can learn from the lion's other end. That is one lesson that Jerry Haigh brings home in this fascinating collection of stories about working with wild animals in Africa. Conversational in tone, conservational in theme—you will be right beside Jerry, wife Jo, and a colourful cast of vets, guides, and wardens as they scour Africa’s sprawling vistas “troubleshooting” lions, rhinos, humans, and other indigenous mammals. Conservationists, veterinarians, and fans of real-life adventure tales will want to keep this memoir handy on the dashboards of their Land Cruisers.
