It is composed of a number of smaller districts, including Cahmpawat. All of Corbett's hunts occur in either Kumaon or Garhwal.
Man-Eaters of Kumoan contains an author's note, nine chapters and a glossary full of Kumaon jargon. The author's note explains why and how tigers become man-eaters and the reason that Corbett has to kill them. Chapter 1 is the story of Corbett's first man-eater kill, the Champawat Man-Eater, Chapter 2 introduces Robin and their first hunts together, and Chapter 3 tells the story of the Chowgarh tigers and the hunt.
Chapter 6 is a brief interlude concerning a fishing expedition.
Chapters 7 and 8 are both brief and discuss the huntings of the Kanda Man-Eater and the Pipal Pani Tiger respectively. The final chapter describes Corbett's final hunt, where after weeks of tracking, he kills the Thak Man-Eater. Read more from the Study Guide. Browse all BookRags Study Guides.

Similarly, the Leopard of Panar possibly killed some people in northern India before she was hunted down herself. A contemporary review of the book, in quite contemporary fashion, noted of Corbett: Indian toddler marries dog to stop tiger attack. Ugly stuff, but interesting.
For a guy shooting tigers, he's pretty sympathetic toward them: I have extracted, possibly, a couple of hundred porcupine quills from the man-eating tigers I have shot. Many of these quills have been over nine inches in length and as thick as pencils. The majority were embedded in hard muscles, a few were wedged firmly between bones, and all were broken off short under the skin Of course the tigers were dead before he removed the quills, but he does make it clear throughout that he feels big cats turn to human prey only when they are unable to hunt game.
I read this book decades ago when I was a tiger-obsessed kid, I think my dad still has it in his bookcase. I never forgot the description of those quills and would poke myself in the leg with Dixon Ticonderoga 2s trying to imagine what it would feel like.
There are some great books available on archive.
I'm seriously contemplating a Kindle just so I can make best advantage of the wonderful titles to be had. Thanks SpringAquifer.
It is a popular fallacy that all man-eaters are old and mangy, the mange being attributed to the excess of salt in human flesh.
I am not competent to give any opinion on the relative quantity of salt in human or animal flesh; but I can and I do, assert that a diet of human flesh, so far from having an injurious effect on the coat of man-eaters, has quite the opposite effect, for all the man-eaters I have seen have had remarkably fine coats. Deliciously frightening. I feel like I heard a story recently past few months on NPR that subsequent, recent analysis of the tiger corpses revealed they hadn't eaten anywhere close to the number of people as believed at the time.
But I might be thinking about a different set of man eating cats. I'm not sure why relatively weak, slow, puny, clawless, venomless, tasty creatures sharing a habitat with large, powerful, deadly, carnivorous predators would find it unusual to be regarded as prey.
There's a lot of it about, probably a virus, keep warm, plenty of rest, and if you're playing football or anything try and favour the other leg. Oh right ho.
Be as right as rain in a couple of days. Thanks for the reassurance, doc.
