A true thriller

This is the book that one should read, store and tell tales from! Wonderfully narrated by Jim, it felt like I was watching a thriller movie. Jim's view of nature and tigers are a lesson too. I wonder whether anybody tried making a movie based on Jim's stories! It would be grand success for sure.

Classy product

Awesome . Delivery is too slow ...... Pictures are outstanding and looks very original .....Jim Corbett was every inch a hero, something like a "sahib" . He was expert in the ways of the jungle, fearless in the pursuit of man-eating big cats, and above all a crack shot. Brought up on a hill-station in north-west India, he killed his first leopard before he was nine and went on to achieve a legendary reputation as a hunter. 
Corbett was also an author of great renown. His books on the man-e...

Sincere adventure

The blurb is the perfect review of the book. It describes the book in and out that it leaves practically nothing for the reviewers to write about. Jim Corbett as known to everyone is a hunter but he proved himself to be a talented writer. Little bit of add ons in the anecdotes prove his mettle as a writer.
He had given and account of the man eaters as well as his hunting experiences without scaring the readers and also without repugnant grotesque explanations of the kills. Unlike the the Man ...

great book

This book takes into account the man eaters and how Jim shot them one after another. The description is amazing as usual and takes one in the same phase as he is. If one really reads it thoroughly, one can actually feel the excitement in nerves.

Coupled together with the amazing description of the hunts and humor that he puts in the stories, this is all in all a very good book.

Cheers to Jim!!!!!!!

Terrific purchase

The perfect book if you love action , guns , hunting and the perfect details of old India.
Jim have perfectly explained the situation in which a tiger or a leapord turned into a man eater.

Since I'm into gun business the details of his firearms gave me a new idea about hunting arms.

Petrifying Man Eaters

Jim Corbett, who is not only a hunter turned conservationalist but also a beautiful narrator. He brings the idyllic sceneries of Kumaon and Garwhal and the flora, fauna of the region in front of our eyes. The cover design is stunning beautiful with the beast captured in the furious mode.He has written with such brevity that the turning of pages seems so easy and the book fills us with amazement. The tracking of tigers with his trusty guard dog Robin amuses us since Corbett chooses to track ti...

when it comes to adventurous book...specially regarding hunting no one beats jim corbett....I am from the same town where captain Jim corbett was born therefore I can relate to a lot of things that he wrote about in this book....overall a awesome book which will give you a good dose of thrill and quality writing .....flipkart was very slow in terms of delivery but I bought this book for 100 bucks only which pretty much balances the negativity.

One read is not enough!

The book will make you wonder, shiver, and jump up. It just won't let you down. Packed with thrilling stories of Corbett's games, the book introduces you to the simple life of Indian villages from the time and also to the majesty of Kumaon. Kumaon is now a district and has many beautiful travel destinations in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. The writing never ceases to amaze you at the man's audacity to go face the tigers.

I bought the book from a local souvenir shop, when I traveled to the...
