'Part of the power of Corbett's writing lies in the ... maddening faithfulness with which he recalls and recreates the smallest details of his hunts ... The result is the kind of suspense that a professional writer ... could not easily create.'--Geoffrey C. Ward & Diane Raines Ward in Tiger-wallahs '[Corbett] has written with rich insight and deep intimacy about the wild animals of the forest ... When Man-Eaters of Kumaon was published, the book became a worldwide best-seller, was translated into a dozen languages, and even [made into] a Hollywood film.' --Ramachandra Guha in Lives in the Wilderness '...a certifiable classic ... the stories are gripping without being melodramatic ...[they] do not appear worn or dated today. Corbett was an exceptionally good writer, clear and lucid and [his] tales were ...extraordinary.' --The Hindu 'Jim Corbett as a person remains as elusive in [these]pages as the leopards and tigers he tracked down...He left a large place in his heart not only f or the denize Jim Corbett's books on man-eating tigers are not only established classics, but also almost in a separate literary category by themselves. Man-Eaters of Kumaon is the best known of Colonel Corbett's books, and contains ten fascinating stories of tracking and shooting man-eaters in the Indian Himalayas during the early years of the last century. The stories also contain incidental information on flora, fauna, and village life, making this book altogether delightful reading. Printed Pages: 228.
