Summary
"The narrator, a world traveler and explorer, tells his two nephews, Bill and Bob, a series of bedtime stories. In them the narrator travels through the continent of Africa in the role of big game hunter and feather merchant. He undergoes a series of wild adventures and escapes dealing with assorted African tribes--all of them apparently imaginary--and wildlife. His chief foes seem to be alligators, snakes, lions, and cannibals, all of them intent on devouring him."--http://www.ramblehouse.com/hairbreadthescapeschapter.htm
