HARRY SELBY – THE REAL JON SABLE

One of my heroes has passed away. Harry Selby was a legend in Africa, perhaps the last of the Great White Hunters. He guided royalty, celebrities, politicians and writers like Ernest Hemingway and Robert Ruark on their African adventures, which provided inspiration for many of their award-winning tales.

Although I never had the honor of meeting him, reading stories of Selby’s adventures gave me the desire to see Africa for myself and provided inspiration in my creation of Jon Sable.

Below you’ll find a link to an article from the Washington Post that tells his story better than I can.
