Man-eaters of Kumaon by Jim Corbett (1946)

Man Eaters of Kumaon is the best known of Corbett's books, one which offers ten fascinating and spine-tingling true tales of pursuing and shooting tigers in the Indian Himalayas during the early years of this century. The stories also offer first-hand information about the exotic flora, fauna, and village life in this obscure and treacherous region of India, making it as interesting a travelogue as it is a compelling look at a bygone era of big-game hunting. 

Corbett was an author of great renown. His books on the man-eating tigers he once tracked are not only established classics, but have by themselves created almost a separate literary genre. A great read that will have you wanting more and more. Book is in great condition, tight spine, all pages intact. Front cover has a few tears as visible in photo.
