"The Call of the Man-Eater collects stories and anecdotes of Anderson's adventures in the southern jungles of undivided India. Frequently sought by tormented villagers, Anderson would comb riverbanks and jungle trails to hunt down panthers and tigers well known for their slaughter of humans. He negotiated the dangerous terrain carefully with a .405 Winchester rifle, a Studebaker car, and some help from friends and native informants. Sometimes he domesticated these wild creatures, as in the case of the hyena, jackal, bear, barking deer and a few snakes, which the hunter-writer tamed and kept as pets around him". Chapters include:- The call of the man-eater; The evil one of Umbalmeru; A night by the camp fire; The black rogue of the Moyar Valley; Jungle days and nights; The creatures of the jungle; The Sulekunta panther; From mauler to man-eater. "Among Anderson's continuing big game adventures are his hunts after the Sulekunta panther, and panther and tiger in the Moyar Valley and the Madesworamalai Forest". (Czech).
