The book comprises stories of some of the human beings that make up Jim Corbett's poignant rural world, located in the Indian foothills.
Jim Corbett's classic stories of man-eaters have made him a legend in India. In the present work he has created a classic of another sort. The book narrates the stories of simple village folk-people residing in the foothills. The sympathy and concern as well as sharp observation of village-India's life, traditions and folklore - which are incidental to the man-eater stories - are here central. These qualities, once again make for stories that engage the reader with great force, ensuring thereby that this book is an indispensable supplement for anyone who has ever enjoyed Corbett.
