'I am glad I did re-read the book, for few books stand up so well to the passage of time.' --David Davidar, The Hindu '... the book is a delight, with its descriptions in minute and often credible detail of the way of birds, reptiles and animals, and how to observe and interpret the sights, sounds and smells of the jungle ... We may be thankful to [Corbett] for sharing a little of it with us, and for allowing us to accompany him on his expeditions...' --Janet Rizvi, Indian Express Jim Corbett is world famous for his classic man-eater stories. However, the three volumes collected here show a very different side to this remarkable man. In My India, he describes the villages of the Kumaon Hills, and the customs and lifestyles of the people he encountered. Jungle Lore is the closest Corbett ever came to writing an autobiography, combining recollections of his earliest days with frank views on the need for conservation which were well ahead of their time. Finally, in Tree Tops, the only book Corbett set outside his beloved India, he captures the savage beauty of Kenya's wildlife as well as telling the story of the royal visit of 1952, during which Princess Elizabeth learned she was Queen. Printed Pages: 224 with line drawings and a map.
