The Hunter is Death tells the fascinating story of the life of George Rushby. As a child in England, Rushby devoured every book written about hunting in Africa. As soon as he set foot on African soil, the continent captured his heart. Starting out as a foreigner in a primitive land with no skill in hunting, he gradually evolved into one of Africa’s greatest hunters and adventurers. As ivory hunter, farmer, prospector, game ranger, conservationist, and eventually the man who defeated the dreaded man-eating lions of the Njombe district, he crossed paths with intriguing characters from different corners of the world. He came face to face with majestic elephants, poachers, witchcraft, cults and countless other challenges which he took on with an open mind and a sense of humor. The continent of Africa has for a long time produced its share of bush stories, some carried down generations, others more recent. Readers interested in traveling, travel writing, history and natural history will enjoy this book.
