Books by Jim Corbett - Indian Writer & Wildlife Preservationist
Colonel Jim Corbett was born at Nainital in 1875, the eighth child of Christopher and Mary Jane Corbett. His father was the postmaster of Nainital. He did his matriculation at Nainital’s Philanders Smith College. He did not pursue his academics any further. He spent his summers at Gurni House in Nainital while in winters he went down to Kaladhungi in the tarai jungles. It was here he was taught how to fire a gun by his eldest brother. The abundance of wildlife around Nainital those days can be gauged from the fact that Jim spotted tigers and leopards within a six and a half-kilometer radius of the temple of the goddess Naini, he developed a spontaneous affinity with nature.
At the tender age of ten he found himself addicted to hunting, he had shot his first leopard and would just pick up and train his gun on any wild animal he encountered in the Jungle. When he was eighteen he joined the railways as assistant station master. Jim Corbett wrote many books in his lifetime and many books were written on him and his work. You may get Jim Corbett's books in almost all Indian languages- Matahi, Bangla, Uria, Kannad, Urdu, Telagu, Malyalam and Tamil and almost all Indian and Foreign languages. After World War II he settled in Kenya with his sister Maggie. It was there that at the ripe age of eighty he passed away on 1955, leaving behind a legacy which still reverberate in the valleys of Kumaon and Garwhal.
