Jim Corbett (The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag)
Jim Corbett (The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag)
Description
About the Book

Perhaps the most exciting of all of Corbett’s legendary stories of man–eaters, this book is a gripping tale of a notorious leopard which spread terror in the hills of the colonial United Provinces.

Corbett’s deep sympathy and concern for the people of rural India, combined with his sharp observations and vivid, detailed style, make this a valued possession for all those interested in good writing as well as wildlife and environment conservation.

‘Part of the power of Corbett’s writing lies in the…maddening faithfulness with which he recalls and recreates the smallest details of his hunts.’

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
