Jim Corbett (The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag)
Description
About the Book

Perhaps the most exciting of all of Corbett’s legendary stories of man–eaters, this book is a gripping tale of a notorious leopard which spread terror in the hills of the colonial United Provinces.

Corbett’s deep sympathy and concern for the people of rural India, combined with his sharp observations and vivid, detailed style, make this a valued possession for all those interested in good writing as well as wildlife and environment conservation.

‘Part of the power of Corbett’s writing lies in the…maddening faithfulness with which he recalls and recreates the smallest details of his hunts.’

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable.

I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom

I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
