A must read for all who love India and Nature ...
16 November 2017
This is the ultimate classic by Edward James (Jim) Corbett ...
He writes simply and powerfully for an audience that he captivates with his vivid style. His detailed narrations are from memory and even if the odd item was 'added in', it seems more than authentic and believable. Jim takes you back to the 'good days' of the Raj but never gets into praising the British in any manner. History tells us that he was often treated as an Indian, almost so, by his own country men & women. We know he loved India and for that he is still loved a 100 years on!
Whatever else one might say, it's one of those books which you don't put down until you've read all of it.
What makes it so easy to read in our times is the fact that the book comprises short stories. So, those starved for time, can quickly read a captivating story. Also, most individuals today are not connected to nature and don't even look at the trees and bushes in their own garden carefully. So, if there are any 'nature lovers' among you all 'potential new readers', you will fall in the love with nature and feel more for her (Mother Nature)... and not just for the dead tigers who ate up humans and were then shot by the 'maneater slayer', some called 'Carpet Sahib'.
