In the forests of the Himalayan foothills he has tracked tigers and elephants, observing individual animals over many months. He has returned to all the places Jim Corbett wrote of in his famous stories of maneating tigers and documented the changes.
The essays in this book convey the beauty and thrill of Indian forests and their wildlife to the non-specialist. Dr Johnsingh takes us for walks in the jungle with him and in each essay he tracks a different animal and tells us not only of his experiences, but also of the habits, biology and current condition of the species he is discussing.
Jim Corbett Of India: A detailed biography of Jim Corbett with much of his correspondence reprinted, as well as something of the current tiger conservation effort in India and what it owes to Corbett.
The author devotes a lot of space to recounting many of the good works and acts of kindness done by Corbett in his lifetime. Fascinating and slightly bonkers. Jim Corbett: Portrait Of An Artist by N K Singh is a painstaking effort to bring out the literary values of Jim Corbett's books and to give them artistic perspective.

Jim Corbett Books Edward James Corbett - was an Indian-born British hunter, conservationist and naturalist, famous for hunting a large number of man-eating tigers and leopards in India.
I always considered Jim Corbett as a hunter but after Jungle Lore, my perception changed. Now I consider him as a naturalist who actually learned everything about nature by living closest possible to it. In every chapter you will get amazed by the observations of Corbett that he wrote flawlessly. However book seems little slow while reading. Some may consider it boring, just because the minute level of Jungle is really unknown for people like us.
Book is full of many small and big incidents that happened with him in his young age. You can read how he learned to shoot, and how he felt when he first hunted down an animal.
Now very less of the forests are left, once where Corbett roamed with his gun hanging on shoulder, has been destroyed. The majestic tigers that once ruled the jungles are now struggling to save their existence and the graceful leopards are now only remained a shadow of their past existence.

Jim Corbett in his ever captivating style has vividly detailed his shikar experiences and adventures which turn out to be lessons for anyone who venture into jungles that follow their own rules which people from cities, towns and sometimes even those from the fringes of these jungles do not understand. Jungle Lore is a sort of auto-biography of Jim Corbett, in which he explains in detail his exp If you haven't frequented forests and would like to know how forests function, then read Jungle Lore.
Jungle Lore is a sort of auto-biography of Jim Corbett, in which he explains in detail his expeditions of childhood, the incidents that made him a clever hunter. His experiences with catapult, muzzleloader, and regular guns shows his growing grip over the land he wandered. His fearless, adventure seeking nature made him an expert shikari as stealthy as a leopard.
All his experiences, of course, are coated with ideas of conservation which later made him declare that a camera is a better weapon inside a forest than a gun, to preserve these forests for the future generations. Jun 25, Garima rated it really liked it. An absolutely refreshing book. As you read, you can almost feel the fragrance that fills the woods, you can hear the barking kakar, the cheetal, listen to the melodious birds that sing, you can see the tiger going up to his kill and his exquisite coat!
You are introduced to a whole new world and its inhabitants, the world of the jungle. The author shows what great a treasure nature holds for us, oblivious to which we pass by, unfortunately. He sensitises us to our fellow beings whom we often ign An absolutely refreshing book.

Sep 03, Madhulika Liddle rated it really liked it. Beginning from when he was a mere boy of eight, deputed to keep watch while the girls of the local British population went swimming in the canal, through to his arranging hunts for everybody from the Maharaja of Jind and the Viceroy, Lord Linlithgow, there are lots of interesting anecdotes here. There are anecdotes involving his brother and other older children and young adults who were part of their group. Best of all, there are the absolutely fascinating descriptions of life in the jungle.
Not just the by-the-way snippets one comes across in his more popular books about the hunting of man-eaters, but hard core stuff. Like how to read a paw-print or snake track: Even if the entire thing is staged, and even if it is for nothing more glorious than showing how good a shot one is.
This, not because an animal was a threat to anyone; not for food; not for anything except for showing off. Jul 31, Ravinder rated it it was amazing Shelves: A wonderful book about the jungles near Kaladhungi in the early decades of the 20th century. Chapter 11 is by far the best in the book, giving information about trees, birds, animals by taking the reader into the jungle from dawn to dusk. Aug 15, Tanjila Mumu rated it it was amazing.

Jim Corbett's love for nature, jungle especially Kumaon region shows up throughout the book.
He shared very detailed knowledge about jungle folks, their different calls, tracks and pug marks and other things. As he says book of nature has no beginning no end, no one can learn everything about it.
