ABOUT THIS BOOK
Arguably the best-known of Jim Corbett’s books, Man-eaters of Kumaon comprises ten stories, each of which details Corbett’s encounters with various dangerous man-eaters in the Himalayan region. With fascinating tales such as ‘The Champawat Man-eater’, in which Corbett recounts how he hunted down a tigress who had reportedly killed 436 people in the Champawat region; ‘Robin’, a tribute to Corbett’s faithful spaniel who accompanied him on many a hunt; and ‘The Bachelor of Powalgarh’, the story of the most sought-after big cat in the United Provinces from 1920 to 1930, this collection is sure to send your heartbeat racing.
Enlivened by an introduction by Ruskin Bond, this book, that made Corbett famous in India and abroad, is a must-read for fans of adventure stories and jungle lore.
