It details the experiences that Corbett had in the Kumaon region of India from the s to the s while hunting man-eating Bengal tigers and Indian leopards. Man-Eaters of Kumaon is a book about wildlife and the human-animal conflict more than a century ago when the scales were less heavily tipped in favor of mankind. If you are likely to feel horrified at the thought of the beautiful big cats shot by Corbett who later became one of the first animal conservationists in India then refrain from further reading. But if you can keep a sense of time and place while reading about his exploits, Jim Corbett will leave you enthralled.
