Robert Ruark was the most influential safari writer of the latter 20th century. He was a nationally renowned columnist and author, who inspired both hunters who traveled to Africa and those who could only dream about it. This is a biography of Ruark—about his work, the times in which he lived, and the strange allure that Africa held for him.
