Robert Ruark (December 29, 1915 in Wilmington, North Carolina – July 1, 1965 in London, England) was an American author, syndicated columnist, and big game hunter. Born Robert Chester Ruark J. to Charlotte A. Ruark and Robert C. Ruark, a bookkeeper for a wholesale grocery, young Ruark grew up in Wilmington, North Carolina. His brother, David, was adopted, and little is known about him. The Ruark family was deeply affected by the Depression, but still managed to send Robert to college.

This book is a compilation of the true stories of Robert Ruark who went on Safaris in Africa during the late 1940's and throughout the 1950's. This obviously takes place before conservationists were present in Africa due to the merciless killings of animals now being protected. I did not realize how this book was going to unfold before reading it, I knew it was about a hunter but did not know how mu "Use Enough Gun" an autobiography by Robert Ruark is a good read, just not for the faint hearted.

com: Use Enough Gun: An exceptional stated First Printing. Use Enough Gun. Robert Ruark. Published by The New American Library, 1967. Condition: As New Hardcover. The book is faultless, the jacket has a light damp stain extending from the lower half of the ARK in the Author name for about 1/4" on the spine and two much smaller spots lower down (maybe someone carried in the rain?) also about 8 real fine dark "speckles" at the top of the spine and maybe six very small "speckles" near the leading edge of the front cover. Laid in is a computer type punch card as a receipt for the purchase of the book on June 12, 1967.

Ruarks "USE ENOUGH GUN". Use Enough Gun is very good. It was published after his death, compiled from notes he had taken and other books he wrote. Registered Users do not see the above ad. Is this a good one? Seems like I've heard it mentioned, and Ruark has always told a good tale. New copies can be found from Safari Press, Book Trail, or other on-line outdoor bookstores.

Robert Ruark (1915-1965) an American author, a syndicated columnist and an avid hunter, who fell in. .It is interesting to note that Ruark was booked with Selby because of a desire to use a tracker named Kidogo, who had hunted with Ernest Hemingway on an earlier safari.

Robert Ruark (1915-1965) an American author, a syndicated columnist and an avid hunter, who fell in love with Africa which was evident in hi. Ruark's pairing with Selby, though fortuitous, was merely luck. Kidogo was a member of Selby's crew. Harry Selby (left) and Robert Ruark (right) with a great pair of Elephant tusks, photographed at the Mount Kenya Safari Club near Nanyuki, Kenya. As a result of this first safari, Ruark wrote a book called Horn of the Hunter, in which he detailed his hunt.

This is vintage Ruark and I have been a fan of his forever. I remember, as a boy, devouring his articles in Field and Stream and other outdoors magazines.
Forget Hemingway, in my estimation Hemingway is a pale immitation of Ruark (even though he actually came before Ruark and was idolized by him-if that makes any sense). For me no one else is able to provide the completeness of the experience like Ruark; the smells, the heat, the gut-clenching fear, the "small, gleaming campfires at the end of the day"; the triumphs and disappointments. These are not just hunting stories; this is adventure in the fullest Sense. His love for Africa, its people and its animals is palpable on every page. you understand what he means when he writes: "Africa grabs hold of a piece of your heart and never quite lets go".
If this is the sort of thing that stirs your blood then you will want to read everything of his you can and, as I have, you will go back and re-read them time and time again.
Be aware, though, if you are already a Ruark fan that about the first half is taken directly from "Horn of the Hunter" and another large part is from his novel "Something of Value". As a sampler for someone new to his writing you couldn't do any better, but, if you've already read those then probably one of his other works would be a better choice.
This is, unfortunately, just a series of the best excerpts from a number of his other books or columns. The title is very misleading as there is very little, and only brief discussion of the firearms of the era that were used and why. However, that being said, if you own no Ruark, this will give you some necessary exposure to a man who went from never having shot a high-power rifle to one of the most well known dangerous game hunters in the world. It covers that transition well and you can see him grow into it as you read of his own self doubting of skills to having enough experience to know how to survive a leopard mauling. If you already know and own Ruark, this is a waste of money. If you do not own Ruark and can only own one.....they buy this one.
It was a favorite of my husbands and I've given it to another hunter to read
It's a good read.
