Overview: The Second Jim Corbett Omnibus: My India Jungle Lore Tree Tops

The Second Jim Corbett Omnibus is a collection of three tales penned down by the hunter himself, namely, My India, Jungle Lore and Tree Tops. Jim Corbett is renowned for his hunting skills and the tales of his bravery are recounted even to this day. But in these books, we see a very different side of the hunter, as he explains his love for the valleys and the jungles.

In My India, he writes about the sprawling hills of Kumaon, where he had most of his escapades. In these hills, lives the humble villagers, who had rich cultural backgrounds and lifestyles. In Jungle Lore, the author provides an autobiographical tale, where he tells about the days of his youth, and how with the progression of age, he thought about conservation of the very animal he was hunting down. In Tree Tops, we go on a trip to Kenya, which is known for its lush and savage wildlife.

Jim Corbett initially compiled his experiences in a book called Jungle Stories in 1935. But in 1943, on the request of his near and dear ones, he decided to revise the stories and published it as Man-Eaters of Kumaon. The tales narrated by Corbett serve as a reminder of how poaching has drastic effects on human life, as the big cats have nowhere else to go. Later in his life, he acknowledged the need to conserve these magnificent creatures and thereby played an important role in the establishment of India�s first national park. This park, set in the lush hills of Kumaon, where Jim Corbett had many of his adventures, was later named after him in 1957. Some of the other books the hunter-turned-conservationist wrote are The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag and The Temple Tiger.
