Kort biografi
Robert Michael Ballantyne (24 April 1825 – 8 February 1894) was a Scottish author who wrote more than 100 books.



La leí pensando que era un libro de robinsones (y no quisiera dejarme ninguno por leer, es una forma de filosofía que me obsesiona). Sin embargo, es más un libro de aventuras, aventuras de evangelización, para ser más exactos, lo que no es de extrañar, pues está escrito 1857. No obstante, aunque la parte de lucha con los salvajes y su posterior conversión (sin que se dé la más mínima mezcla espúrea con ellos, faltaría más) me ha aburrido bastante, la parte robinsoniana me ha gustado, los personajes están muy bien dibujados y me ha resultado, como mínimo interesante.… (mere)

A rollicking good story for young adult readers about the settlement of the Bounty mutineers on Pitcairn Island. So convincing that for many years if I came across a historical detail that clashed with Ballantyne’s account, I would disbelieve it.

"The Gorilla Hunters" is an adventure novel written by Robert Michael Ballantyne. Published in 1861, the story takes readers on an exciting journey through the jungles of Africa as a group of hunters embarks on a quest to capture the elusive and dangerous gorillas.

The novel follows the adventures of two brothers, Ralph and Peter, who travel to Africa with their uncle to search for gorillas and other exotic animals. Alongside a diverse group of fellow hunters and local guides, they encounter various challenges and dangers in their pursuit.

As the hunters navigate the dense African wilderness, they face encounters with wild animals, treacherous terrain, and hostile tribes. The story offers thrilling action sequences and suspenseful moments as the characters face off against the powerful and intelligent gorillas.

"The Gorilla Hunters" not only provides a thrilling adventure but also explores themes of bravery, survival, and the clash of cultures. Ballantyne's vivid descriptions transport readers to the heart of Africa, depicting its natural beauty and the harsh realities of life in the wild.

The novel also touches upon colonialism and the exploration of uncharted territories during the 19th century. It reflects the prevailing attitudes of the time towards Africa and its people, although it is important to approach the narrative with an understanding of the historical context.

Ballantyne's writing style is engaging and accessible, making "The Gorilla Hunters" an enjoyable read for both young and adult readers. The author's firsthand knowledge of Africa, acquired during his own travels, adds authenticity and depth to the story.
