I've heard disturbing things about that 'Ship-Trap Island'
Pistol shots? What animal makes this scream?
Hello. I am Rainsford, a hunter from New York City.
Rainsford and Whitney are hunters who are traveling to the amazon to catch game when Rainsford hears noises in the night. As they pass Ship-Trap Island, the noises get closer. Rainsford, trying to classify the noises, falls of the yacht.
"No animal had a chance with me anymore."
It's not right!
Rainsford swims the best he can to the closest land which was the Ship-Trap Island. He can clearly hear the noises and classifies them as pistol gunshots. But, then he hears screaches from some kind of animal.
Rainsford decides to check out where the shots were coming from and comes across a huge house with a fence surrounding it. He goes up to the door and knocks on it twice. A very large man opens the door with a revolver barrel pointing at Rainsford's face. A man comes out from behind the very large man and tells him to put down the gun.
The man says he is also a hunter and his name is General Zarohff*. The large man was one of the General's men named Ivan. The General shows Rainsford to a room to eat and tells Rainsford his life story about hunting. Rainsford realizes that the General doesn't hunt animals, he hunts people.
The General offers Rainsford to hunt with him but instead, they end up hunting each other. Rainsford sets a man-catcher trap that kills Ivan. Rainsford finds himself getting trapped in quicksand but manages to get out and trap one of the General's mosters* in the quicksand.
Rainsford finds his way to the edge of the island and jumps out into the ocean, out of the General's reach. The General goes to sleep thinking the game is over, but Rainsford comes back and is the one who ends up sleeping in the bed.
