It details the experiences that Corbett had in the Kumaon region of India from the s to the s while hunting man-eating Bengal tigers and Indian leopards. Man-Eaters of Kumaon is a book about wildlife and the human-animal conflict more than a century ago when the scales were less heavily tipped in favor of mankind.

If you are likely to feel horrified at the thought of the beautiful big cats shot by Corbett who later became one of the first animal conservationists in India then refrain from further reading. But if you can keep a sense of time and place while reading about his exploits, Jim Corbett will leave you enthralled. One tiger, for example, was responsible for over human deaths.

The text also contains incidental information on flora, fauna and village life. A hundred years ago, the Himalayan foothills were an inaccessible place with few hospitals, thatched houses, and no electricity.

The highlight of the book The feeling of being up close and personal with the most dangerous and beautiful beasts of the wild who are so fast disappearing from our jungles will amaze you once you read this amazing book. The descriptions of the cats, each with a unique personality, habits, and reasons for turning to man-eating, are written fondly and with great attention to detail.

Only a human being who has lived in close proximity to, and regularly had to match wits against, a tiger or leopard can truly describe what the animal is really like. Jim Corbett describes some of them as having a wicked sense of humor, others of being annoyed with him, another of being just plain lucky in his repeated escapes, but one and all of being magnificent, dignified and worthy adversaries.

If you are looking for beauty and truth of the life of Forest and wild animal, you should read this book. Buy it here on Amazon or Flipkart.
