Rainsford is on his yacht, sailing to the Amazon. He had heard gun shots and went to the railing of the yacht to see what it was. He lost his balance and fell into the dark Caribbean waters.
Rainsford swims over the island and is now looking around for any sign of life. He sees something that looks like a town but as he comes up on it, it is a mansion.
Rainsford goes to the house and a huge man named Zaroff answers the door and they welcome him to the mansion and let him stay there. They are both really in to hunting. Little does Rainsford know, Zaroff has a different version of hunting.
Rainsford was scared of Zaroff and his abilities. Zaroff began to tell Rainsford that he would hunt him for just 3 hours because Zaroff did not hunt normal animals, he hunted humans. Rainsford had no choice but to let Zaroff hunt him. Rainsford got nothing to use during the hunt. The Hunt began.
As the hunt began, Rainsford decided to hide up in a tree. It was very risky. Than he fell out leaving a huge crackling sound. He then ran for his life. The hunt went on for 3 days instead of 3 hours. Zaroff was getting close to Rainsford. Rainsford was forced to jump off into the sea. He swam back to the mansion. Zaroff ended the hunt.
Zaroff went back to the house and saw Rainsford. Zaroff wondered how he got there and Rainsford said, ¨I swam¨. Zaroff was imppressed. No one had ever survived the fight. Rainsford was the only one to survive.
