'Beyond the tales of Corbett's quests lies an extraordinary body of accurately observed details about life in the Indian jungles ... and the behaviour of tigers...Most of his independent findings have been subsequently been borne out by scientists.'--Geoffrey C Ward & Diane Raines Ward in Tiger-wallahs '...Corbett's sharp eye for detail and his straight-forward style make the book a compulsive read.' --Sunday Mail 'Colonel Jim Corbett was a rarity -- a man of immense courage and knowledge of the wildlife he hunted, and later attempted to conserve ... He had nothing but admiration and respect for tigers, the most magnificent creature to be found in the ...jungles.' --The Hindu 'Here is ... the quintessential Corbett ... The book is a delight ... Corbett is acutely aware of the damage ... being wrought to the forests of human interference ... We are thankful to him for allowing us to accompany him ... into a realm that only a generation or two age covered much of Indi a ...' This is the last of Jim Corbett's books on his unique and thrilling hunting experiences in the Indian Himalayas. Concluding the narrative begun in the famous Man-Eaters of Kumaon, Corbett writes with an acute awareness of all jungle sights and sounds, his words charged with a great love for human beings that lay within his hunting terrain. These qualities are what make these stories vintage Corbett. Printed Pages: 190.
