"The author Joyce Boyd-Moss and her husband George farmed in Tanganyika, and she recounts adventures, hartebeest and zebra [sic]. Elephants were also collected, as were additional leopards and lions that preyed on the couple's dairy herd. There is also a good chapter on Mrs. Boyd's encounter with a crocodile" (Czech).
