Man-Eaters of Kumaon
About This Book
"Man-eaters of Kumaon intensely portrays the hunting adventures of Jim Corbett. Since his childhood, he had a deep fascination for the forests and wildlife, and this interest led him to become a good tracker and hunter with time. Due to this amazing skill-set, he was often sought after by the then government of the united province to track and kill the tigers and leopards who became man-eaters. Even though he was a skilled hunter, he never killed any wild animal other than the man-eaters. Jim Corbett believes that human beings are not the natural prey of tigers. It is only when tigers have been incapacitated through wounds or old age that, in order to live, they are compelled to take to a diet of human flesh.
A tiger's function in the scheme of things is to help maintain the balance in nature. However if, on rare occasions when the tiger is driven by dire necessity, he kills a human being; or when his natural food has been ruthlessly exterminated by man, he kills two per cent of the cattle he is alleged to have killed. Therefore, the author believes that it is not fair that a whole species should be branded as being cruel and bloodthirsty, because of this act. Through the stories in this book, the passionate wild-life lover Jim Corbett gives the reader a deeper insight into the wild-life and at the same time makes it a delightful read."
