Czech: An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting Books, 1785 to 1950, pages 74/75, ‘A most unconventional woman, Herbert wrote several books recounting her big-game hunting excursions. In this, she is accompanied by her cousin Cecily, bagging lesser kudu, oryx, lion, and rhino in the Ogaden region. While stalking rhino, one of her native guides was charged and killed. She relates the difficulties a woman has on a shooting trip from bathing to competition with male sportsmen. “My cousin is a wonderful shot, and I am by no means a duffer with a rifle. As to courage – well, we could only trust we had sufficient to carry us on through.”’
