about

The last of Colonel Jim Corbett's books on his unique and enthralling hunting experiences in India, this volume concludes the narrative of his adventures with tigers begun in the famous Man-Eaters of Kumaon. These stories maintain, perhaps even supercede, the high standard of the earlier classic collection. Corbett saves his best story of all for the long concluding chapter in this volume, describing, in The Talla Des Man-Eater, how he embarked on what he feared might be a fatal last test of skill and endurance. As always, he writes with an acute awareness of all jungle sights and sounds, choosing words charged with a great love of humanity, birds, and animals. His calm and straightforward modesty heightens the excitement and suspense of these experiences, in which he continuously risks his life to free the Indian tarai of dangerous man-eaters.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aready a classic. More than just a thrilling book, this is a surprisingly humane and sensitive selection of stories for which it would be hard to find an equivalent. Corbett could understand the animal "languages" of the Indian forest and used this to help himself hunt down and kill the world's worst man-eating tigers, alone! Somehow he succeeds, and goes on to become a pioneer of conservation, with a Tiger Reserve named after him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hunting The Hunter This book is an excellent narration of Corbett's life in the villages of British India while on the hunt for man-eating tigers. His simple prose combined with excellent descriptive and detailed writing will transport you to the jungles of India in an instant. This book also provides a valuable and truthful insight into the lives of tigers in the wild, giving you a greater appreciation of these majestic and powerful creatures whom Corbett refers to as "a large hearted gentleman." This book is a must for hunters and wildlife enthusiasts alike.
