The Fortunate Tiger and Other Close Encounters

299

The Fortunate Tiger and Other Close Encounters selects the most thrilling adventures of Jim Corbett of Kumaon, legendary hunter and author. Corbett, who bagged his first leopard at ten, with a rifle won in a marksmanship competition, ranged far and wide across Kumaon and Garhwal for much of his life, rescuing villages terrorized by man-eating felines. And, in the stories of his exploits—‘The Fortunate Tiger’, which seemed to enjoy divine protection from his bullets; ‘The Man-eating Tigress of Chowgarh’, who stalked Corbett even as he went looking for her; ‘The Talla Des Killer’, which he was forced to track while nursing a burst eardrum; and ‘The Final Man-eater’ of Corbett’s career, a tigress which he lured and shot using himself as bait—Corbett gives us some of the greatest shikar tales ever told. Nature and adventure writing at its very best, The Fortunate Tiger and Other Close Encounters is a classic for all time.
