The story of Ruark's first safari, which ignited a love for Africa that burned forever after.
Very well-written and honest -- sometimes brutally so.


Guide Review

Another Great by Ruark
Horn of the Hunter will reach you -- if you have any love of nature, any appreciation of hunting, any sense of wonder whatsoever, then it will reach down deep and grab something inside you. That's what I think anyhow, and I know it moved me -- and still does every time I re-read it.

Ruark's straightforward and often humorous style made him a very successful writer, and this book is a fine example of why he enjoyed such success. It is a tale of humility and vanity, of triumphs and failures -- but mostly of the utmost triumph of coming home healthy and alive, with some lessons learned along the way. Do yourself a favor and read The Lost Classics of Robert Ruark just before you read this book, you'll be glad you did.
