Book Description Hard Bound. Book Condition: New. (Size:24x15.5cms.), (colour and b& W Photos), Peter Byrne was born in Dublin, Ireland and developed his skill as a hunter and naturalist in the Irish countryside. In 1947, after four years in the British Air Force, he joined a British tea company in north Bengal and spent five years there. During this period, intrigued by the writings of Jim Corbett, he served a self-imposed apprenticeship as an amateur big game hunter and in 1953 moved into Nepal and established his won safari company there, running it and taking the rich and famous big game hunting, for twenty years. His hunting area was the far-west forests and grasslands of Nepal, bordering into Kumaon, in India, Corbett's country, and seeing the possibility this gave him of being able to personally investigate the Corbett legends. he took advantage of it with a long term research project that was only concluded in 2002. The result is this book, an in-depth look at Corbett's great man-eating tiger and leopard hunts by one of the very few people with the background and skills to thoroughly understand and document them. xviii+343 Verify ISBN for International Edition; year of publication 2002 817769183X.
