THE TEMPLE TIGER and MORE MAN-EATERS OF KUMAON; Man-Eaters of Kumaon, My India, Jungle Lore, Leopard of Rudraprayag, 5 Vols
Un-read, as New. 5 books complete boxed set. Jim Corbett was a famous hunter in India in early 1900s and his books are fascinating.
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.
