"Colonel Corbett set out to present in this book 'all I have learnt in a lifetime of jungle lore', and readers will learn ...a great deal concerning[Corbett's] expert knowledge and the rare skill which enabled him to undertake with success the many breathless adventures detailed in his other books. Jungle Lore is in part autobiographical, for it includes stories [about him acquiring his] unique comprehension of the ways of jungle creatures [which] qualified him to free thousands of men and women from terrorization by man-eaters. Jungle Lore [forms] a conducted tour during which Jim Corbett opens his readers' eyes and ears to the sights and sounds of India's wild places, in which he himself made friends among the birds and beasts, for he has long been deeply concerned with the preservation of all but the few that endanger human lives."
