He started work as a minor official of an Indian railway, but his greatest interest was in the wildlife of the northern Indian jungles, which he frequented alone since early childhood. He always claimed that for someone who knows enough not to give provocation, the jungle was extremely safe.

Man-eaters, however, are another thing entirely, and he always emphasised that even the man-eater, almost invariably prevented by injury or age from hunting his natural prey, is neither guilty nor cruel. But it learns its business, sometimes fearfully well.
Corbett never apologised for enjoying shooting as a sport in his early years, but he eventually turned to hunt exclusively man-eaters, for the protection of the people to whom he dedicated one of his books: "My friends, the poor of India. The easy ways of killing an animal rarely work with man-eaters, and Corbett frequently spent weeks, nights after night sitting out alone, after a man-eater which knew of his presence, and was just as interested in stalking him.
Perhaps the majority of his man-eaters, in dense and rocky jungle, were killed at a range of feet rather than yards.
There are no heroics in this extraordinarily brave man's work. He admits his mistakes freely and with humour, and was often in a state of real, well-informed fear. His friends ranged from the highest in the government to the peasants he loved, and he brought them together in a way few have done.
A constant theme is that the tiger is great-hearted gentleman, and doomed by the progress of civilisation, in ways that have nothing to do with hunting, unless something is done. The Jim Corbett National Park exists today because he wanted it so.
Jim Corbett would have been a great man if he had never written a word.
But he writes extremely well, with humour and economy of language on a subject which would provoke many to hyperbole. The work is not slowed down by a meticulous attention to detail, and explaining the pros and cons of the decisions he made, which might one day save a reader's life.
Books on big-game hunting rank high among those of people who have seen and done, as well as theorised. But Jim Corbett's are undoubtedly the finest I know.

Reviewer: samcadub - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - June 13, Subject: Extra ordinary I bought this book from Jim Corbett national park's sovenier shop. Immediately I bought all books written by Jim Corbett.
He is one of the best story teller. I have uploaded this book on this website.
It takes you to those Indian jungles where Corbett used to roam and track animals. In this book he recollects many of his adventures, quite a few of which would make you look over your shoulder, and describes the noises and the views of the jungle in painstaking detail. In fact the third book in this collection contains only one tale, about the man-eating leopard of Rudraprayag, whom Corbett tracked for some ten weeks in the jungle.
That tale reads like a thriller, one that would give you goosebumps and make you jump up at the sight of your own shadow. For those who love wildlife, those who love to go to forest safaris, Jim Corbett's recollection of his stories will definitely interest you, and once again allow you to be lost in the dense trees and the singing birds from an era that is disappearing away too quickly The collection gives us a first person account of his hunts which were carried out in the jungles of the foothills of Himalaya in the early 20th century.
Corbett's writing is marvellous.
When he narrates, he takes the reader with him, never missing on the small details and descriptions which make the jungle come alive. The thrill of hunting a man-eater gives the reader goosebumps while he flips pages and is kept on the edge. Corbett' The Jim Corbett Omnibus is a collection of three of his books.
Corbett's descriptions of the foothills has made me fall in love with the jungle and I was constantly googling the animals and plants he writes about.
The fear which grips the people in the vicinity of a man-eater is unparalleled and the damage done to these small hill communities is devastating. Corbett, beyond everything else was an environmentalist and an acute nature lover. Never does he let the reader cultivate hate for these animals who in his own words, killed --"Not against the laws of nature, but against the laws of man".Although this book is a very nice collection, I don't think much of it will stay with me other than a few tales from 'My India'.

The writer encompassed the events so plainely that it discard all the stains of fiction.
