Researched, photographed, and compiled over 20 years, Peter Beard’s ‘End of the Game’ tells the tale of the enterprisers, explorers, missionaries, and big-game hunters whose quests for adventure and ‘progress’ were to change the face of Africa in the 20th century. This volume is assembled from hundreds of historical photographs and writings, starting with the building of the Mombasa Railroad (‘The Lunatic Line’) and the opening-up of darkest Africa. The stories behind the heroic figures in Beard’s work – Theodore Roosevelt, Frederick Courtney Selous, Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen), Denys Finch-Hatton (the romantic hero of Out of Africa), Philip Percival, J. A. Hunter, Ernest Hemingway, and J. H. Patterson (who became famous as the relentless hunter of the ‘Man-Eating Lions of Tsavo’) – are all contextualized by Beard’s own photographs of the enormous region.
