Whitney and Rainsford were siting on a yacht and looking around they saw a little island. Then they were looking to see what island it was and when they found it out they were a little scared. It turns out it is Ship-Trap Island.
They are in their yacht and they were awaken by three distinctive gun shots. Then they decided to swim towards the gun shot. When they reached shore they started climbing up the rocks and he heard a gun shot and felt something hit him in the chest.
When Rainsford woke up. He was stranded on the island he saw last night. The sun shone brightly on his face.
Then Rainsford came across a building and he for some reason went inside. He went upstairs and found a man on the couch who's name was General Zarroff. Rainsford was very very happy to find somewhere to stay.
The General then showed him around the place. It turns out he was a hunter. The General said that he was the best hunter ever and he was only there to hunt a rare creature in the woods.
The general tries to kill Rainsford instead Rainsford kills the General.
