Corbett who bagged his first leopard at ten with a rifle won in a marksmanship competition ranged far and wide across Kumaon and Garhwal for much of his life rescuing villages terrorized by man-eating felines. And in the stories of his exploits--'The Fortunate Tiger' which seemed to enjoy divine protection from his bullets 'The Man-eating Tigress of Chowgarh' who stalked Corbett even as he went looking for her 'The Talla Des Killer' which he was forced to track while nursing a burst eardrum and 'The Final Man-eater' of Corbett's career a tigress which he lured and shot using himself as bait--Corbett gives us some of the greatest shikar tales ever told. Nature and adventure writing at its very best The Fortunate Tiger and Other Close Encounters is a classic for all time.

Edward James 'Jim' Corbett (b. 1875) was an Anglo-Indian hunter and tracker-turned-conservationist author and naturalist. After giving up hunting Corbett played a key role in protecting India's wildlife especially the endangered Bengal tiger and used his influence in the provincial government to establish a national reserve for these tigers. The reserve was renamed in 1957 as Jim Corbett National Park in his honour. Corbett was an avid photographer and after his retirement wrote several books recounting his hunts and experiences. Some of his works that have enjoyed much critical and commercial acclaim are Man-Eaters of Kumaon (1944) The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag (1947) Jungle Lore (1953) and The Temple Tiger and More Man-Eaters of Kumaon (1954). Jim Corbett died in Kenya in 1955.
