Book Review – The Inner Force Return to the Dark Continent


he Inner Force Return to the Dark Continent by Frank Schmitz is a wonderful story about Frank’s return to Africa.   On this trip, Frank is pursuing Leopard and Cape Buffalo. Reading this book you really get to know the author extremely well and you get a great feeling for who Frank is as a person and as hunter.

Frank is a lifelong entrepreneur and a ”Jack of all trades”.  As a builder and tradesman, a talented artist with vision for creation and design.  His real love is for the great outdoors where he has mastered his woodsman ship ability and led him to pursue his dream and own a strong viable outfitting business in Idaho.

As the owner and outfitter at Lockey U Outfitters , Frank has built a strong reputation among his clients for his knowledge of the outdoors and his commitment to pursuing game in a fair chase setting.Frank is a character and his book leads you on the twists and turns of his hunt over 14 days on the African continent.  The book rolls back and forth between the present hunt and stories of past hunts and gives the reader a sense and understanding of ‘Man as Hunter’.

This is a great read and while Frank Schmitz is no Ernest Hemingway the story flows well and keeps you interested from cover to cover.  I recommend that if you are interested in hunting Africa or you are just looking for a great read while hanging out in the stand waiting for that big buck to come within range.
