A colonial African hunter tells his young son about his pursuit of a legendary monster, akin to that of Loch Ness.
The writing is high-quality, and the setting comes through with a vivid sense of place (even though I don't believe that the author ever visited Africa). Unfortunately, unpleasant and offensive stereotypes also come through in a couple of places in the story.
Still, the story retains its power as a discussion around the symbolism and significance of the hunt, balanced by an emerging sense of empathy. ( )
