About this book

Legendary hunter, gifted raconteur, a man who understood every nuance of the jungles of Kumaon and whom the people of the region considered a benefactor and `saviour'. That is Jim Corbett for most of us. What few know is that Corbett shot his first man-eater when he was ten and his tenth fifty-three years later; survived without food for over sixty hours while tracking his quarry; shot a ferocious tiger from a distance of a few feet; gradually transformed from a hunter wielding a rifle to one of the first conservationists of wildlife in India, and that his photographs and films of the jungles find pride of place in the Natural History Museum in London.
