Bought this in a book store in Ladakh, read it on my flight back to Bangalore. It's really hard to put down. But what this has is a lot of lead-up writings while the main incidents of a lot of hunts are in other books. This is more like a trailer and builds up all the insanity for you to learn that the grand climax of each story is somewhere else!
Plus it has a lot of Corbett's letters to his sister, publisher and others' letters to Corbett with reviews of his other work. If you are looking to understand Jim Corbett, this is a good read. But if you are looking for edge-of-the-seat thriller stories, then you might be slightly disappointed because of the point mentioned above.
Still, it is an excellent read and is really quite tough to put down once you start reading!
This book is a little glimpse into the life of Jim Corbett. Observant readers will love the little stories within the stories.. for example, Mr. Corbett becoming impatient with Mr. Ibbotson, only to later realise the fault was not Mr. Ibbotson's and admitting as much. The human side of the legend is revealed through the writings.
To properly appreciate the collection, an introduction to Corbett Sahab is beneficial, though not essential. I would recommend readers familiarise themselves with Man-eaters of Kumaon and The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag along with this little epistolary book.
A beautiful book that gives insight to the man Jim Corbett was. His love for the people of Kumaon and the place itself shines through. This is my first Jim Corbett book and inspires me to read all his books. Will worth the buy
A good insight into Jim Corbett. This book mentions lots of Corbett's unpublished articles and also his correspondence with various people. The letters truly indicate how good his memory was of various events.
Although a lot of pieces in the book would appear unfamiliar to the reader who has not read JC's books.
Very nice book published for the first time.Hitherto unknown write ups of Jim Corbett. Contains rare photographs and write ups. Also of interest is the section of letters written by Jim Corbett.Very nice illustrations. Published by Oxford India with particularly attractive cover design.
