The last of Colonel Jim Corbett‘s books on his unique and enthralling hunting experiences in India, this volume concludes the narrative of his adventures with tigers begun in the famous Man-Eaters of Kumaon.
Corbett saves his best story of all for the long concluding chapter in this volume, describing, in The Talla Des Man-Eater, how he embarked on what he feared might be a fatal last test of skill and endurance.
A continuation of the narratives in Man-eaters of Kumaon, The Temple Tiger and More Man-eaters of Kumaon further details Jim Corbett’s hunting exploits, as he is called upon to take down tigers, leopards and bears in regions such as Dabidhura, Muktesar, Panar and Tanekpur. Apart from the hunts, the accounts vividly describe the flora, fauna, people and local legends of the areas Corbett went to, and his experiences in them, ranging from hair-raising to rib-tickling.
The book is translated to Malayalam by M S Nair and is published by DC Books under the title ‘Kshethrakkaduvayum Kumaonile Narabhojikalum’.
