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 obervations and vivid, detailed style, make this a valued possession for all those interesed 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.’
– Geoffrey C.Ward & Diane Raines Ward in Tiger Wallahs
‘Corbett was an exceptionally good writer, clear and lucid… (His) tales were extraordinary.’
