Someone of Value: A Biography of Robert Ruark By Hugh Foster

Agoura CA: Trophy Room Books, 2001. Reprint. Hardcover. FINALLY, the long awaited (it's been ten years) reprint of the best biography ever done on Bob Ruark. 336 pages, 43 ill. The first limited ed of 1,000 copies printed in 1992 sold out in less than a year! So we expect big things for this reprint edition. Through ten major books and thousands of newspaper columns, Ruark was known to millions around the world. In his short lifetime, he grew from "an old man's boy" to warrior, columnist, reporter and big game hunter. His newspaper columns in many ways accurately predicted what would happen in Africa when European powers engineered independence for their colonies. He was also a noted big game hunter (There are worse memorials to a great life than a book or a tusk.) In the end, this old man was all wore out, but during his life he was a belt level reporter, a visionary and a man who always lived at risk. Hugh Foster spent hundreds of hours of research and hundreds more interviewing Ruark's friends in order to compile this informative, insightful, and exciting biography of a man and a continent both scrambling for existence.
