About the Author:

Edward James Corbett was born 25th July 1875 of English ancestry in Nainital districts of Uttarakhand. He grew up spending much of his childhood exploring the wilderness that exists around. Jim Corbett lived his life amidst dense jungle and developed a deep knowledge of the way. Sir Jim Corbett spent his major part of his life at Gurney House (located in Nainital) with his large family, his mother Mary Jane Corbett and his sister Margaret Winfred Corbett, fondly called Maggie. His father, who was postmaster in Nainital died when Jim Corbett was four. The whole responsibility fell to Corbett's mother to raise and educate 12 children on a widow's meager pension. Soon after an early age Jim Corbett has to face with the responsibility of supporting his family of six members so he took up a job with the railways.The fable of Edward Jim Corbett is still persisting in the minds and hearts of the people of Garhwal and Kumaon. People all over the world know Jim Corbett from his fabulous writings as a famous hunter who later became the adversary of many notorious man-eaters. There are four biographies on him and three films on his life that displays the lucid accounts of his exploits that he has given in his books.

Review:

After a long time waiting I finally bought this piece of Legend about a great man.I love the Jim Corbett Stories since I was a boy.The stories are great.I don't have a explanation.Certainly worthy master piece. --By Amitabh Bhuyan on 13 July 2015

Just got back from visiting the Corbett national park and this book is great for learning about tigers, leopards, bears, deer, birds and the life lead by the villagers surrounding the jungles . I think the author has a wonderful gift of becoming a companion to the reader as I was sad after I finished this book so I bought the the second omnibus: his sensible and sensitive voice describes his work tracking and hunting man eaters and describing the hill people and their customs and traditions with reverence and compassion. I was haunted by the leopard of rudraprayag and have come away with a new respect for leopards --By Leela on 22 February 2016

Amazing story telling. Nice and easy composition with pictorial illustrations, as if I was there with the hunter while he was tracking the man-eater. I knew all the stories by heart since I was a kid but it made me glued to it as if it was my first time. My daughter is also enjoying reading it. --By Satyam on 22 June 2016
