KIRKUS REVIEW

Big game hunting, and specifically tiger hunting, in India, is as much an art as it is a sport. In this narrative by an outstanding Indian beast-tracker, the intricacies of vanquishing the man-eating tiger are spelled out with precision and suspense. The nature of the animal, the optimum conditions for vanquishing it, the appropriate weapons, the obvious and the less expected pitfalls which confront the sportsman are related through the many instances which this book recounts. Told with urbanity, Kesri Singh not only informs his reader as to the nature of tigers and the men who hunt them, but conveys vividly an atmosphere of India and the safari.
