An adventure story that strongly stuck with me (and it is not on the list) was Congo Kitabu by Jean-Pierre Hallet. Its an autobiographical tale of his experiences in what once was the Belgian Congo. I read it numerous times in the '60s. One of the parts that stuck with me the most was when he went through the Masai rite of passage of spearing a male lion. A group of Masai warriors must have been a force to be reckoned with on the African Plains. As a pre-teen, this and The Lord of the Rings were my two adventure books.
I just noticed, I have a signed copy of the book (not first ed.)
