Frederick Courteney Selous dreamed of Africa as a youth, and ultimately became a frontier hunter in the 1870s and 1880s, then a pioneer of what would become Rhodesia. His books on hunting adventures in southern Africa remain classics of the genre and they would make him famous and a friend to luminaries from President Theodore Roosevelt to the bestselling novelist H. Rider Haggard.
