"That this engrossing adventure is a serious humanistic statement and a plea for concord between races should be obvious..."
A group of white hunters on safari in Africa manages to insult the members of a native tribe, and the warriors respond by attacking them. After they've tortured and murdered all but one of the hunters, the natives offer this last man a slim chance for survival.
In a variation on the classic story, "The Dangerous Game", the white man is set free and given a small lead before the tribesmen set out after him. Only his wits and will-to-survive can save him, as he flees for his life through the foreign jungle terrain.
