The stories in this book are masterpieces of adventure stories set in the depths of Indian jungles. Charismatic man-eaters and beasts of prey people these delightful anecdotal tales by the celebrated author of jungle lore. Full of dramatic tension and excitement, they also reflect the author's genuine concern for Indian wildlife in danger of extinction by the encroachment of a 'developing' population. About The Author Kenneth Anderson (1910-74) hailed from a Scottish family settled in India for six generations. His love for the denizens of the Indian jungles led him to big game hunting and eventually to writing real-life adventure stories. His books are hailed as classics of jungle lore.
