Description du produit

Revue de presse

It was not only the ripping-yarn action of the stories and the engrossing narratives that held me, I was just as much taken by the man who recounted them. Through the most riveting episodes, his compassionate character and quiet voice seemed personally to speak to me ... The book has never paled, never dated, and I have never forgotten its significance or the astonishing, gentle man who wrote it. (Martin Booth, The Sunday Times)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Jim Corbett was every inch a hero, something like a "sahib" Davy Crockett: expert in the ways of the jungle, fearless in the pursuit of man-eating big cats, and above all a crack shot. Brought up on a hill-station in north-west India, he killed his first leopard before he was nine and went on to achieve a legendary reputation as a hunter.
Corbett was also 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. Man Eaters of Kumaon is the best known of Corbett's books, one which offers ten fascinating and spine-tingling 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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Incredible Life Story 28 mars 2015
Par JoyceBoudreau - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
I knew this book was old and didn't quite know what to expect. From the first sentence to the last it captivated and held me on the edge of my chair. Super book about an incredible man who has super-human courage. I was amazed at the ferocious habits of these tigers and how terrifying life is for the people of India living with these animals in their midst. The writing is superb and so vivid, it seems like you are right there as the events unfold. I am sharing this book with many of my friends and they are equally impressed. I would have liked to have met Col. Corbett and have the very great opportunity to hear his stories. Incredible life and novel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A real page turner, an exotic adventure 10 avril 2016
Par Richard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
This is a real page turner, a book that grips you from the very first page. the writing is excellent and as other reviewers have pointed out, you feel you are right there on a tiger hunt. Man eaters, both Tigers and Leopards, something people even today must deal with in rural India. A simple task like getting some water from a nearby stream is a daunting task wrought with unspeakable danger, the horror of tiger kills on poor villagers, trying to eke out a life farming and food gathering. You will never think about remote rural areas again the same way, you will be thankful to be so blessed as to have running water and sewer lines, the basics of life in the West that we take for granted. Getting mugged on a city street is nothing compared to a supreme predator with fangs and massive claws that can kill with a single blow. Can't imagine anything more horrific than suddenly facing a 500 to 700+lb tiger on your path, coming out silently from the brush. And hungry. What causes them to turn to human flesh is widely discussed
5.0 étoiles sur 5 True and stunning – the fascinating edge-of-the-chair accounts of stopping man-eaters as only a world-class hunter can relate. 14 juin 2017
Par Sam B. Wagner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Jim Corbett was raised in the jungles of India and learned the sights and sounds at an early age. On many occasions, he was the expert to whom all others turned when no one else was able to stop the depredations of these man-eaters. And many of the man-eaters, having been hunted by amateurs, quickly learned caution, stalking people, patience, and above all hungered for their acquired taste which brought terror and misery to thousands. Tigers and leopards would normally hunt other animals, and even the cubs of man-eaters would generally go after their natural prey. But the man-eaters, most injured by misplaced bullets or shot, porcupine quills, or similar physical debilitating injuries, turned to killing people and terrorizing large areas. Very well written and well worth the time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the most spine tingling books of all time. 11 mai 2015
Par Turbo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Jim Corbett, who went alone to kill man eating tigers, some of which had killed up to 400 people tells a spine tingling story of the terror of the hill people when a man eater was loose, an uncanny affinity with the jungle, the animals who by their calls helped him accurately place the tiger, and his extensive knowledge of tigers who by their preference for human flesh, usually due to injury, had also learned the techniques and ways of man.
Some of the duels lasted for months, and on many occasions he was lucky to escape with his life.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Good Period Read of Maneating Tigers 9 octobre 2015
Par John Weinreich - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
If you are interested in period pieces surrounding true events and real conditions, this would be a good book to read. The author tells the story in first person, about the difficulties in ridding the countryside of man-eaters, specifically tigers. It's a dangerous job, done for other than 'hunting' reasons, will little reward. I enjoyed the narrative for it's realism and straightforward approach to solving a very real problem for the rural people in the areas affected.
