Interesting. The man eaters of tsavo is actually Patterson’s first hand account of that story. Pretty good read. The lions were stuffed and given to the field museum of natural history in Chicago Illinois. In his accounts he talks about how it was a very common occurrence for people to just disappear and never be seen again. It wasn’t just the lions that would snatch you up. I’ve found that real life portrayed through historical accounts and biographies/autobiographies are always more fascinating than movies. Another one of my favorites is “Crow killer”. If you’ve ever seen Jeremiah Johnson, that’s the Disney version of one of the baddest dudes to walk this earth.They butchered his story. Crow killer is the biography of “liver eating“ Johnson. A great book too if you enjoy historical accounts.
