Overview

This is the Jim Corbett's fifth book and third and last about man-eaters. The book contain five stories--- the first one about ''The Temple Tiger'' and last one ''The Talla Des man-eater''. The temple tiger's story is unique in the sense that that tiger (not a man-eater) was never shot by Jim Corbett despite his best attempts. And the story of Talla Des man-eater is also fascinating and different among all Jim Corbett's other man-eating stories. In his own words---''the story of the Talla Des man-eater---which I have refrained from telling until I had written Jungle Lore''--- is considered best among many readers.

Jim Corbett was slayer of man-eating tigers and leopards and was one of most prominent nature and wildlife conservative of his time. Several times he endangered his own life to save the lives of other common people for whom he had a great ambition of sacrifice.

This book is gift to all Corbett Lovers and for whom nature is something of great value as was for Jim Corbett himself in those bygone days.

    The Great Last Hurrah for Hunting

    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.
