They were on a boat in the middle of nowhere and they see a very big island "What is that?" Rainsford said. "That's Ship-Trap island." Said Whitney. Later, they herd 3 gunshots and it sounded like a 22, Rainsford went to look and his pipe fell off the boat and so did he.
When he fell off the boat he yelled back at the boat and Whitney couldn't hear him so he swam to the island, and then he saw some overgrown plants pattened down and he saw a dead animal too big to be a squirrel or a bunny rabbit maybe it could be a baby dear. He looked over and saw what looked like a mirage but he went over to it and saw a big iron gate.
When he got there was a big buff tall dude who had a revolver in his hand pointing right at Rainsford heart and a guy with grey hair came out and acted like he knew Rainsford and he asked for him to come in. Rainsford was really confused. He told Rainsford his name is General Zaroff and said he has read all of his books. Rainsford was confused and scared.
General Zaroff tells Rainsford that he not only hunts animals he hunts humans as well. And General Zaroff asked if he wanted to go hunting with him. Rainsford said no. General Zaroff said we shall have a hunting against each other and he gave Rainsford a 3-hour headstart
Rainsford hid a tree because he herd bushes moving and it was General Zaroff he stood still and General Zaroff blew some smoke in the air and Rainsford choked on the smoke and it made Rainsford choke. And when General Zaroff went home he ran to another spot and got across the quicksand. He made another trap.
The trap he set up killed General Zaroff's dog and he went back home took a nap. Rainsford set up another trap and General Zaroff came back out and it killed Ivan. After it killed Ivan Rainsford ran and jumped off a cliff into the ocean. General Zaroff went back to his house, and he found Rainsford in his curtains. They both had a sword fight and Rainsford won the battle and he got to sleep in General Zaroff's bed.
