Gamefields Press has published 13 books on Africa with Kobo, 11 of mine (one of them, With a Gun in Good Country, first published by Trophy Room Books in hardback) and memoirs by a villager-commercial poacher turned conservationist in the Zambezi Valley, Mario Kawayawaya; and a cookbook/bush-pilot memoir by an old Africa hand, Roger McKay.

My magnum opus dealing with wildlife and indigenous peoples conservation, GOD'S COUNTRY, comprises Vol. I: Plunderers of Eden, a history of Zambia and a memoir of my time there as a professional wildlifer and conservation activist, and Vol. II - Guardians of Eden, in which I lay out a Green New Deal for Zambia. From Vol. II, I have extracted a free Guardians of Eden Manual to assist villagers, chiefs, headmen and spiritual advisors (the Guardians) in the battle for the customary commons.


In addition to the ebooks available on Kobo, PDF copies of the books are available from me at the same price as the ebooks. Payment can be made by PayPal on the 'Send a payment button.'

PDF copies of J.E. Hughes's classic exploratory book of Northern Rhodesia, Eighteen Years on Lake Bangweulu, is available at $20 a copy. This was done to raise funds for a particular chiefdom's development association in Zambia.

Also for sale is my original copy of the Hughes classic @ $1500 U.S.

Plunderers of Eden is unique and makes a massive contribution to the history of Zambia. No one else has ever had the courage to recount firsthand what went on during the period.

With a Gun in Good Country is at once funny, scary, and memorable.
