Brilliant for anyone with an interest in Wildlife,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Jim Corbett Omnibus: Man-eaters of Kumaon; The Man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag; The Temple Tiger and More Man-eaters of Kumaon (Hardcover)
Jim Corbett's writing is so vivid and descriptive that the reader finds themselves sitting in the Jungle with the writer. He brings across perfectly the terror of sitting in a tree in the dead of night, waiting for the moon to rise and suddenly realising that the roles are reversed and the leopard is on the branch behind you, with only a 'boma' of thorn bush keeping you apart.
Although considered to be one of the 'Great White Hunters' these books are not a case of 'I saw a big thing thing and I shot it...'. Jim Corbett shows a deep love and understanding of the ecology of the Indian Jungle and through his prose paints an incredible picture in the reader's mind.
I thoroughly recommend any of his books to anyone who has an interest in wildlife.
