Description

It is a gripping narrative of a notorious leopard which spread terror in the hills of the colonial United Provinces.

The present work consists of what is perhaps the most exciting of all Corbett's jungle tales. As with his other man-eater stories this too is characterized by a deep seated sympathy and concern for the people of India. These qualities, combined with Corbett's sharp observation and vivid, detailed style make this a book that all interested in good writing as well as in wild life will value.
