THE TEMPLE TIGER AND MORE MAN-EATERS OF KUMAON. By Jim Corbett. Illustrated by Raymond Sheppard.

(1954) 1989 reprint of 1988 paperback edition. 8vo paperback (137 x 215mm). Ppvi,183. B/w illustrations by Raymond Sheppard, end-paper maps.

This is Jim Corbett's account of his pursuit of the Temple Tiger and is followed by accounts of the maneaters of Muktesar, Panar, Chuka and Talla Des. "This is the last of Colonel Corbett's books on his unique and thrilling hunting experiences in India, which concludes the narrative of his adventures with tigers begun in the famous Man-Eaters of Kumaon. It does more than maintain the high standard of that enthralling classic, for Jim Corbett kept his best story of all for the long concluding chapter in this volume, telling, in The Talla Des Man-Eater, how he went out on what he feared might be a fatal last test of skill and endurance. As always, he writes with an acute awareness of all jungle sights and sounds, his words charged with a great love of humanity, and of birds and animals. His calm and straightforward modesty serves only to heighten the excitement and suspense of these experiences, in which time and again he risked his life to rid the Indian people of dangerous man-eaters."
