Review It was not mxn the ripping-yarn action of the stories and the engrossing narratives that held me, I was just as much taken by the man who recounted them. This is another of Sir Jim Corbett’s thrilling works. One can imagine how it must have been for those people living at the mercy of man eaters of these jungles. The 1 st man-eater hunt and kill of Corbett was here in Champawat a tigress which had record attacks.

The tales are so good that they will take you to the jungle itself as if you are there and its happening in front of you. Corbett’s notes revealed that this leopard, an overgrown elderly male, was in fine condition except for a few healed injuries sustained from hunters after it had become a man-eater. Of the two man-eating leopards of Kumaon, which between them killed over five hundred and twenty-five human beings, one followed on the heels of a very severe outbreak of cholera, while the other followed the mysterious disease which swept through India in and was called war fever.

The author is an enormously gifted individual and has the fantastic ability of drawing the reader in to his story and, with the power of his narrative, making the whole scene come alive. However, Corbett notes that the number of deaths was probably higher due kuaon unreported kills and deaths due to injuries sustained in attacks.
