Description: The White Bushman

Peter Stark (1929-2013) in Namibia was widely known and is unforgotten as the White Bushman. An excellent horse rider, his fearless personality and phenomenal knowledge of the veld, combined with an intimate knowledge of the San people and their culture make for incredible stories and experiences. Peter Stark was born in 1929 in Windhoek and, after several wild and adventurous years of daring lion hunting by horse and service during the bush war, was to be a nature conservationist in the Okaukuejo area. His memoires offer an important cultural-historical perspective on the times of South West Africa. The photographs, taken either by Stark himself or his fellow game wardens, contribute greatly to enhancing the images conjured up by these captivating adventures and anecdotes.
