Someone of Value: A Biography of Robert Ruark
Through ten major books (including Uhuru, Poor No More, The Old Man and the Boy, Horn of the Hunter) and thousands of newspaper columns, Bob Ruark was known to millions around the world. In his relatively short lifetime, Ruark grew from "the old man's boy" to become a warrior, columnist, novelist, one of America's best investigative reporters and a big game hunter. He said, "There are worse memorials to a great life than a book or a tusk."
After Ruark's premature death (his greatest pleasures in life were drinking and making love and he couldn't give up drinking) this intensely interesting and complicated man did not pass into oblivion. His popular novels were often reprinted. But his newspaper columns, which so often and so accurately predicted what would happen in Africa when European powers engineered independence for their colonies were completely overlooked. Very simply, he stated that "When you change a man's way of life you had better have something of value with which to replace it."
