Delightful insights into the legend, this biography is written with a deep sense of empathy with Jim Corbett and his life in the Indian jungles and villages.Jim Corbett (1875-1955) is legendary for his classic hair-raising tales of life in the Indian jungles. Corbett was an expert shikari, having shot his first leopard at the age of eight. From the mid-1920s he took up the camera and became a staunch champion of the conservation of India's wildlife. Corbett's deep love for India was fittingly honored when the National Park he helped establish at the foot of the Kumaon Hills was named after him.
