ABOUT THIS BOOK

A continuation of the narratives in Man-eaters of Kumaon, The Temple Tiger and More Man-eaters of Kumaon further details Jim Corbett’s hunting exploits, as he is called upon to take down tigers, leopards and bears in regions such as Dabidhura, Muktesar, Panar and Tanekpur. Apart from the hunts, the accounts vividly describe the flora, fauna, people and local legends of the areas Corbett went to, and his experiences in them, ranging from hair-raising to rib-tickling.
Simply told and capturing the essence of the Himalayan ranges, The Temple Tiger and More Man-eaters of Kumaon makes for a compelling read.

AUTHOR OF THE BOOK

Edward James ‘Jim’ Corbett (25 July 1875 –19 April 1955) was an Anglo-Indian hunter and tracker-turned-conservationist, author and naturalist, famous for hunting a large number of man-eating tigers and leopards in India. He played a key role in creating a national reserve for the endangered Bengal tiger in what is now Uttarakhand. In 1957 the national park was renamed Jim Corbett National Park in his honour.
