This particular one is about a Leopard who lived in Rudraprayag, a small town in the state of Uttarakhand in India. It is situated on the confluence of rivers Alaknanda and Mandakini before they go south to join the river Bhagirathi and form the famous river Ganga or Ganges.

It is located at a distance of 86km from the famous Hindu holy town of Kedarnath and is therefore frequented by Hindu travellers from all over world. The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag begins with an introduction of the man-eater when Jim first comes to learn about it and decides to go and hunt it.

He tries everything from poisons to gin-traps to goats as bait and fails innumerable number of times. Finally, he is so disappointed with his failure that he decides to the leave the town for a few months.

After staying away for a few months and having gained his new found confidence he decides to come back and begin with a fresh start. However, his luck fails him here as well and after struggling for a long time he decides to quit. It is on his supposedly last day in Rudraprayag when he shoots the Leopard fatally and ends its long streak of terror. The book is written very interestingly and informatively. Jim Corbett begins with a very creepy and petrifying introduction of the Man-Eater by describing its kills and the fear which it had instilled in the minds of the citizens of Rudraprayag and the passing pilgrims bound for Kedarnath.

Also, for somebody who is reading this kind of a book for a first time, the descriptions are quite vivid and the concepts are explained in great detail.

He is extremely emotional and has the wonderful ability to portray his emotions. The way he describes his admiration of the Gorkhas, their land, the love for India and its people, the appreciation of the beauty of Himalayas as it leaves him spell bound, is just adorable.
