Jim Corbett of Kumaon

D.C. Kala (Author)
Synopsis The first extended biography, spoken of by Corbett fans for many years, and remaining unavailable for too long, is now reissued with extensive revision in text and addition of some new material. Jim Corbett (1875-1955) was born in Nainital and spent most of his life in Kumaon. He is still remembered as a hero in the region, and his famed worldwide glows undimmed thanks to the books he wrote. This book evokes Corbett’s life and world with a knowledge and authenticity lacking in other books on the subject. In author's words, Corbett was a 'tiger among men, lover of the underdog, a hero in war and pestilence, a model zamindar and employer, an ascetic, naturalist, and, above all, a hunter of man-eating tigers and leopards for thirty-two active years... A man of the five continents where his fans are and will be.'
