Jim Corbett was a hunter, conservationist, author and colonel in the British army. His fanatical sense of hunting made him a hero in the eyes of the Indian villagers who would come to ask his help for killing tigers. He loved photography and took many beautiful photographs. He would educate school children on how to safeguard and conserve natural forests. He helped form India's first national park in the Kumaon region.

It was not only the ripping-yarn action of the stories and the engrossing narratives that held me, I was just as much taken by the man who recounted them.

The book has never paled, never dated, and I have never forgotten its significance or the astonishing, gentle man who wrote it. Martin Booth, The Sunday Times
