A re-release of a Safari Press classic! In the late 1980s, Safari Press brought out the complete set of Jim Corbett's works, housed in a printed slipcase that featured the work of the internationally famous wildlife artist Guy Coheleach. The same high-quality set is back in print!

Jim Corbett was every inch a hero, something like a sahib Davy Crockett: expert in the ways of the jungle, fearless in the pursuit of man-eating big cats, and, above all, a crack shot. Brought up on a hill-station in northwest India, he killed his first leopard before he was nine and went on to achieve a legendary reputation as a hunter. Corbett was also an author of great renown. His books on the man-eating tigers are not only established classics, but they have, by themselves, created almost a separate literary genre. Jim Corbett wrote six books detailing, in these breath-stopping pages, his hunts after man-eating tigers and leopards in India in the early part of the twentieth century.

This set includes all his books: Temple Tiger, Tree Tops, Jungle Lore, Man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag, Man-eaters of Kumaon, and My India. The stories also offer firsthand information about the exotic flora, fauna, and village life in that obscure and treacherous region of India. Corbett is considered the greatest tiger hunter of all time, and his books are considered classics in hunting literature as well as thrillers of the first order.
