Preface by Edith Wharton; from p.4,5: "Before, as I have already related, I had gone out with my father to make a collection of the fauna of East Africa for the Berne Museum. This had been his dream, which we had long shared and saved for. But my own private dream had always been to go into the wilds unarmed and, in some unforeseen way, to win the friendship of the beasts. Now, I was returning because I was under the spell; for Africa had taught me that only in primitive vastnesses can one find oneself and grasp the meaning of the word Unity. Book No: 2501256
