Description
In 1898, all work on a British railway from Kenya to Uganda came to a halt, as Indian railway workers building the bridge at the Tsavo River began to be attacked and dragged from their camp at night by two man-eating lions. Project leader Colonel J.H. Patterson took it as his responsibility to dispatch these wily and aggressive animals, which he only achieved after months of various attempts. Despite the typical Victorian understatement of his 1907 account, the horror of their rapacious marauding comes clearly through, and the book has inspired numerous dramatic adaptations, including the Oscar-winning film The Ghost and the Darkness.
