(Czech, p. 242) George Gilman Rushby (1900-1968) was the subject of T. V. Bulpin's The Hunter is Death, which related events from his life, particularly the hunting down of a pride of lions reputed to have killed 1500 people. "Rushby describes his numerous big game hunting adventures both as a professional hunter and as a game warden in Tanganyika (Tanzania). He provides detailed chapters on hunting elephants, man-eating leopards and lions, and other game. In addition, he supplies a good chapter on rifles, and a section on renowned elephant hunter James Sutherland." - Kenneth Czech, An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting Books, 1785-1999
