The Jim Corbett Omnibus

by Jim Corbett

Condition: New

Oxford University Press, 2011. 5th or later edition. Hardcover. New. 15 x 23 cm. THE JIM CORBETT OMNIBUS The Man-eaters of kumaon; the Temple Tiger and more man-eaters of kumaon; The man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag Poignant and evocative, Jim Corbett’s riveting accounts of his adventures in the foothills of the Himalayas have kept generations of readers enthralled. The Jim Corbett Omnibus brings together three eternal favourities from his thrilling tales of encounters with man-eaters. Beginning with the spine-tingling excitement of his first man-eater hunt in Champawat, this selection presents stories of Corbett hunting down notorious man-eaters in the Kumaon region including the ‘Temple Tiger’ blessed by the local deity, and a chilling account of his relentless pursuit of the ‘evil-spirited’ ‘Man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag.’ Dramatic yet reflective, these stories bring to life the colours of the jungle, and are touched by Corbett’s deep sympathy and concern for the village people, their traditions, and folklore. Vividly illustrated, this classic collection will appeal to staunch Corbett lovers and to anyone concerned with wildlife and the environment. Printed Pages: 610.

Man-Eaters of Kumaon, The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag, and The Temple Tiger and More Man-Eaters of Kumaon, the three classic collections of Corbett's hunting stories, which vividly bring to life the drama and beauty of the jungle and its wildlife are here brought together in a single volume for the first time.
