Action, adventure, survival, environment, conservation...
I loved these books when I was a kid. At the time, they seemed to border on sci-fi regarding the at-the-time-amazing technology the boys used.
Of course, looking back you can see how these stories are flawed, but I still think they are enjoyable. In fact, it would make for a really interesting middle school science project for children to read one of these books and then compare them with the knowledge of the world and technology we have to

A fast-paced uncomplicated adventure. Already on page three there is a description of being eaten alive by hyenas and on page 14 the pilot is rendered unconscious by a poisoned arrow, so this book is great for keeping reluctant or young readers hooked, indeed the cover says that these are the books that got Anthony Horowitz reading.
This one of 14 Willard Price adventures was first published in 1966 though and it is a bit dated. There is a strong colonial flavour, but there is still plenty to enj

This is an enjoyable tale about the Hunts battling poachers in Tsavo National Park. The 'mystery' of Blackbird is ill-disguised, but fun nevertheless. Themes of interest include the retreat of British colonialism and early concern for conservation.

Pulling more of these (my fave series at WK) in on ILL. Love them. As the Denver Post reviewed when it came out in 1966: A cut above the average boys' serial. True.
