Ethiopian Episode.


The author, who has lived in Kenya for many years, went up to Ethiopia to study two animals, the Walia Ibex and the Mountain Nyala—both of which are unique to the country.This is the story of his expedition, which was partly financed by the World Wildlife Fund.He is a shrewd observer, and his descriptions of the country, and the people he met are lively and often very amusing;the garrulous policeman, the squalor of the “men’s room”at the hotel in Dodola, and much, much more.
