The Man-Eating Leopard Of Rudraprayag

Front Cover
Rupa, 2016 - Leopard - 138 pages
An exciting narrative of a leopard that spread terror through five hundred square miles of the hills of the United Provinces, The Man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag also takes a detailed look at life in the Garhwal region of India. Apart from Corbett's hair-raising pursuit of the leopard for almost a year, the book talks about the superstitions prevalent in the region, the beauty of the landscape, what turns a leopard into a man-eater and many other, often surprising facts and anecdotes, all told in Corbett's inimitable style. A worthwhile read for all ages, The Man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag is also an ode to the people who inhabit the hills, and the resilience with which they face the hardships that assail them.
