The Second Oxford India Illustrated Corbett is another collection of Corbett’s best-loved writings complemented by gripping illustrations. Whether lovingly sketching life in a Himalayan village as in ‘The Queen of the Village’ and ‘Kunwar Singh’, or describing the dense Indian jungles and teeming wildlife of his days in Jungle Lore, or telling the story, tinged with regret, of the hunting of the beautiful Pipal Pani Tiger, the stories reflect Corbett’s involvement with India, her people and her flora and fauna. With ‘The Talla Des Man-eater’ and ‘The Man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag’ we enter vintage Corbett territory—tightly paced and nail-biting accounts of hunting man-eaters in the hills of Kumaon and Garhwal. The entire collection, with its rich visuals and riveting tales, will appeal to young readers, and Corbett admirers alike. However, some stories have been chosen particularly for our younger readers. ‘Robin’ is a poignant story of Corbett’s favourite hunting dog; ‘Sultana’ is an appealing tale of an Indian Robin Hood; and ‘The Muktesar Man-eater’ is a touching account of Corbett’s satisfaction at ‘having made a small portion of the earth safe for a brave little girl to walk on’.
