Book Review: Jungle Lore by Jim Corbett

Jungle LoreJungle Lore by Jim Corbett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you haven’t frequented forests and would like to know how forests function, then read Jungle Lore. Jim Corbett in his ever captivating style has vividly detailed his shikar experiences and adventures which turn out to be lessons for anyone who venture into jungles that follow their own rules which people from cities, towns and sometimes even those from the fringes of these jungles do not understand.

Jungle Lore is a sort of auto-biography of Jim Corbett, in which he explains in detail his expeditions of childhood, the incidents that made him a clever hunter. His experiences with catapult, muzzleloader, and regular guns shows his growing grip over the land he wandered. His fearless, adventure seeking nature made him an expert shikari as stealthy as a leopard.
All his experiences, of course, are coated with ideas of conservation which later made him declare that a camera is a better weapon inside a forest than a gun, to preserve these forests for the future generations.
