We here in the United States don't have to worry much about being killed and eaten by large animals. The people of India do not have that luxury. It was estimated that over 1,200 people had been killed by tigers or leopards in and eight year period in the 1920's. This book is written by an Englishman who lived his life in India and became a great hunter of those tigers and leopards who caused such terrible loss of life.
