Publisher's Summary

A famous hunter. A legendary storyteller. A simple man. 

This book talks about the experiences of hunter and conservationist Jim Corbett, during his years in the United Provinces, or what is now known as Uttarakhand. Here we see a different side to Corbett, not as the intrepid hunter of big cats but a man who blends seamlessly with the mountain folk of Northern India. 

Join him in his adventures and feel the thrills of hunting; follow him into dense forests as he encounters a dreaded dacoit who has a heart of gold; and enjoy the tales of love, loyalty, and resilience of simple villagers. This skillful storyteller is sure to keep you glued to the book.

Tedious narration

I was keenly looking forward to this, having read Man Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag, some thirty years ago. The narration is very tedious and I gave up after about half an hour.

Worst Audible Experience Till Now

A fascinating and heartwarming story reduced to a journey of pure boredom because of the awful narration.

India of that time

in this book Jim Corbett has described Indian people there culture, clothing, customs etc. there is no where you find any thrilling forest hunting experiences. In this book there are only some encounters with wild animals since his life has been around jungle but here he has not described it for the the wildlife part but more connected the wildlife with people in village. Anyone who want to have a look at the early 20th century Indian village life should read this. after reading this book you will find how innocent Indians have been in that times. narration was satisfactory. At the beginning you will find the narration to be semi robotic but after a few chapters you will see the narration has improved.
