Jim Corbett of Kumaon
Jim Corbett of Kumaon
Description
Back of the Book

Jin Corbett (1875-1955) was born in Naini Tal and spent most of his life in Kumaon. He is still remembered as a hero in the region and his fame worldwide grows undimmed thanks to the books he wrote.

When it originally appeared in a limited edition in 1979, Mr. Kala's Jim Corbett of Kumaon was the first extended biography to be published of the great man. Since then others less familiar with Corbett and the region he trod have written on him, but Mr. Kala's work remains an important and pioneering source book and, perhaps because he too belongs to the mountains of Kumaon and Garhwal so loved by Corbett, this book evokes Corbett's life and world with a knowledge and authenticity lacking in other books on the subject.

In preparing the second edition of Jim Corbett of Kumaon, the author revised the text extensively and added some new material. The book has been widely spoken of by Corbett fans for many years, but remained unavailable for too long. This paperback edition will be widely welcomed by a new generation of readers.

Mr. D. C. Kala, a former News Editor with a leading Delhi paper, lives in Ranikhet Amidst Deodhar trees. His biography of Frederick 'Pahari' Wilson, an early White hunter and timber magnate who operated in the Bhagirathi valley, will be published shortly by Ravi Dayal Publisher.

Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails
John, USA
I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
