The way Kenneth narrates his experiences are truly awesome and you would be on the edge of your seat or bed or wherever you are at the moment. For days, I couldn't sleep without checking if there is a man-eater hiding under my bed. When i got over that, it was the fear of rogue elephants haunting me. Through it all, I would give anything to read Kenneth's experiences again and again and again.... simply superb

While Corbett explores Garwhal region, Kenneth Anderson explores South India. I especially liked the episode with the supernatural in the temple well and the pet bear and hyena stories. Description of the forests are less literary but quite enjoyable reading.
