What book is this???
This might seem crazy but..... When I was much younger I remember reading a book that was about a guy going on a hunting trip of some sort with a guide (I think?)... The guide basically dumps him off in some desert type mountainous region and HE becomes the hunted by the so called "guide". The book is basically about him trying not to get shot, starve, or die of thirst and the things he goes through. I can't remember the name of the book for the life of me. The word "...magnum.." comes to mind as part of the name.
The only specifics I remember is that at some point the guy was almost dying of thirst, his tongue was swollen (it was pretty descriptive) from the heat and lack of moisture. He got some water somehow but it was painful to drink.....etc...
I would love it if someone had an idea what it was!! I remember really liking the book!
