Product Overview

Jim Corbett, naturalist, shikari, and conservationist is famous for his tales of hunting in the Indian Jungle. Many years before the issues of conservation became understood, Corbett was obsessed with the jungle and animals of the Kumaon hills. This new edition of Jungle Lore offers Corbett''s own story of his life and career. At the heart of the narrative is a cry for sensitivity to the fragility of nature, and despair over mankind''s divorce from his environment--a message as vibrant today as it ever was.

Author Info
Jim Corbett
Corbett was born in Naini Tal, a hill station in the central Himalayas. His father, Christopher William Corbett, was the postmaster, and his mother, Mary Jane, became a successful businesswoman after her husband's death. Corbett left home at 17 for a job with the railways, but was frequently asked to hunt tigers, and recounted his tiger-hunting adventures in his writing. As the tiger population in India began to dwindle, Corbett exchanged his gun for a camera. Corbett was instrumental in setting up a large game reserve, later named Corbett National Park, which remains one of the few public institutions in India named for an Englishman. Corbett left India in 1947 and moved to Kenya, where he remained until his death.
