Maps of Angola on endpapers Includes bibliographical references and index "In A Certain Curve of Horn, veteran journalist John Frederick Walker tells the story of the giant sable, weaving an enthralling epic of exploration and adventure, politics and war, bringing to life the brutal realities of today's Africa and the bitter choices of conflicting conservation strategies.
