About the Book

The Temple Tiger, the last of Corbett’s books on his gripping hunting experiences in the Indian Himalayas, concludes the narrative begun in the Man- Eaters of kumaon. Apart from displaying the hunter-conservationist’s acute awareness of jungle sights and sounds and accurate observation of life in the Indian forests, including the behaviour of tigers, the stories reveal Corbett’s great love for the human beings living within his hunting terrain. All in all, vintage Corbett.

‘Colonel Jim Corbett was a rarity-a man of immense courage and knowledge of the wildlife he hunted, and later attempted to conserve...

He had nothing but admiration and respect for tigers, the most magnificent creature to be found in the...jungles’.
