It was a very dark night. Rainsford is traveling in a boat and he falls off his boat.
While he fell off the boat, he heard gunshots. Then Rainsford tried to swim towards the boats but it was going too fast. Then he started to swim towards the gunshots.
He got onto an island and fell asleep. He woke up the next next afternoon. He met a guy named general Zaroff. He didn't look like a nice person.
General Zaroff loved hunting. He figured that they found Rainsford on his island. He told Rainsford that he use to read his books about hunting. He hunts a lot of the deadliest animals.
General Zaroff tries to make Rainsford hunt with him but Rainsford doesn't want to. General Zaroff says hunting animals are too easy so he wants to start hunting people who come on his island. He plays a dangerous game with Rainsford, he tries to hunt Rainsford for three days, if he couldn't find him, then he would send Rainsford back home, if he found Rainsford
Rainsford climbs a tree to run from Zaroff the first night. Zaroff knows that he is in the tree but starts to laugh.
