A gem in jungle literature....
23 November 2017
A thoroughly nice read. I have read this book for the second time and enjoyed even more than my first read. This book I feel it's one of the best in jungle literature. A gem in the same. The book although deals with encounters and taking down of man wearing Tigers and leopards, this seems to be of secondary. Primary are the beauty of Indian jungle, the jungle folk and their lives.
Best of the lot are the two, "Temple Tiger" this is the story of an encounter with a Tiger, that was told to be the blessed one by the mother Goddess, and who was no man eater. The chase of man to the tiger and Tiger to the man remained a drawn game.
The last one, "The Talla Des man eater" is the story of a land tigress that killed humans after being invalidated at early age. This is one incredible great of chase in data and nights. Tracking on a injured man eater on foot. Incredible and gripping read.
