I was always intrigued by Jim Corbett. He killed man-eating tigers and seems to devoutly love to hunt these fierce predators, yet he became one of the greatest conservationists in history, as he and Billy 'Arjan' Singh were the brains behind Project Tiger. Anyway, to get onto the book. Corbett's prose is sprite and it keeps in toe with his Victorian tastes. Corbett, however, hones away from modesty and into a passionate romantic as he describes his hunts. When you read the story of 'The Temple Tiger', you get a sense Corbett respected the ingenuity of tigers and also their almost supernatural hold on people as only tigers can. Greatest sport hunting book without a doubt written by the most courageous hunter in history. May Jim Corbett rest in peace.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
