Black boards, spine titled in silver-gilt. Pictures show the actual copy being offered for sale. The scarce first edition of one of the most sought-after books from collectable author, Kenneth Anderson. This - the sixth - is certainly the best of all Kenneth Anderson's books. And that is saying a lot, for the earlier collections of jungle reminiscences have brought him to a wide and faithful audience amongst those who know the Indian jungle and those who have never been near it.
Again he tells us of man-killing tigers that he has tracked and shot, of a panther that was filled with an unquenchable hatred of the human race, of the pathetic end of an aged elephant, of hours spent wandering in the primeval forests of India or sleeping under its stars, and many curious and unexplainable incidents in these primitive regions. His tales have a simple but effective quality that assures us of their authenticity, and in a few words he can build up a picture of the jungle so vivid that even the armchair adventurer might well believe that he has been there. The suspense is often tremendous. Contents include:- The novice of Manchi; The lame horror of Peddacheruvu; The queer side of things; The dumb man-eater of Talavadi; The killer of the Wynaad; The man-hater of Talainovu; Sher Khan and the Bettamugalam man-eater.
