The legendary hero of King Solomon’s Mines recounts a thrilling encounter with an African buffalo in this short story. Adventurer and big game hunter Allan Quatermain has more than his share of tales to tell. But tonight, around a dinner table of refined English gentlemen, he recounts a particular hunting expedition in Gatgarra, South Africa, in which he nearly lost his life. Indeed, when one ventures into the untamed wilderness, the predator can all too easily become the prey.
