This gripping book offers a perfect blend of interesting nature-study and thrilling incident. It is a treasure house of exciting tales of real 'shikar' -- good hunting and actual sight of battles between the Lords of the Jungle, or the subtly told scene of a half-ghostly chase. Racy and well-written, each of the stories in this collection will keep you on the edge of your seat. So whether it's following the tracks of a man-eater or being on a strange panther hunt, Knowles' pen transports the reader to the scene of action right into the heart of the thick jungles of India in the early 20th century. The author travelled extensively across India and was passionate about its flora and fauna. Several stories in this book are set in the Himalayan and sub-Himalayan regions, offering a reservoir of useful information about the richness of the terrain in those days.
