In 2008 MagSet Publications published a book written by Wayne. Into the Thorns is a 570 page hard cover book which covers Wayne’s childhood years growing up in Rhodesia, and his life in the safari business, with a particular emphasis on leopard hunting in the Matobo Hills. Wayne is regarded in hunting circles as a leopard specialist and Into the Thorns took the hunting world by storm, receiving excellent reviews right across the hunting fraternity, with praise coming from seasoned professionals to sport hunters planning their first cat hunt.

“Into the Thorns stands head and shoulders above most other hunting books – it is sure to become a modern classic and treasured collectable.”Ellen Enzler-Herring, Trophy Room Books.

“This is an outstanding work – accurate, exciting, controversial, well written, by a hunter who knows, and cares, about leopard.” – Ant Williams, African Hunter Magazine.

“Into the Thorns is without doubt the most authoritative work written on the subject of leopard hunting. To my mind it is a must for any true hunter’s library.” Kevin Thomas, retired professional hunter (34 years) and author of Shadows In an African Twilight

“Into the Thorns includes plenty of good colour photos, diagrams and maps. Even the captions are good! Grant’s use of language is pleasant and professional, the book feels both edited and proofread – a too rare pleasure in today’s hunting press.”  – Brooke Chilvers-Lubin, African Hunting Gazette.

“Wayne is a top professional hunter widely acknowledged as a leopard “specialist”. Into the Thorns, his first book, describes in convincing detail close (very close!) encounters with these magnificent predators.”Book Review, African Hunter
