Jim Corbett (The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag)
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.’
