Lieutenant-Colonel Jim Corbett was an Indian-born Englishman who became legendary for his ability to track and kill man-eating tigers and leopards - a valuable skill in aregion where a single tiger could kill as many as 400 people. must be as well known through his writing as he was in villages of the Kumaon Hills of the Himalayas in the far north of what was then the United Provinces of India. Tigers, turned to man-eaters by wounds or hunger, were the scourge and terror of the tiny villages and jungles in the hills. District Officers turned in desperation to the hunter and sportsman Lt. Col. Corbett to rid the area of the menace, and they were quickly followedby the villagers themselves. Corbett's love of nature, knowledge of jungle ways, and his keen observation of wild life all combine to make this book one of the classics of its type. The book is introduced by Sir Maurice Hallett, Governor of the United Provinces, and Prefaced by Lord Linlithgow, Viceroy of India, 1936-43.
