Mr Anderson's narration is immaculate... it really throws you back on his time and puts you besides him making you experience exactly what he sees, thinks, feels and does.... it also gives you an insight in the psyche of a person who admires nature slowly graduating to become a part of the jungle who lives in balance with nature although he remains a Hunter by instinct. Apart from engraving the primal behaviours of the flora and fauna through the keyhole of experiences of Mr Anderson, It also ed ...more

Very different from Jim Corbett.Anderson being a hunter possesed the narrative skills at par like the greats of Satyajit Ray, a must read for corbett fans :)

Fascinating

The jungle lores and the narrative keep you hooked! The description and the suspense build up gradually and you start living the experience soon....it transports you to a different world which is governed by a different set of rules...the writer's love for the jungle is evident. Can't wait to read the final omnibus!

So I read a lot of Kenneth Anderson and Jim Corbett books and each story, each magnificent animal, the experiences of the characters and the vicious brutal enigmatic experiences shared will to t

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 ...more

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.

Could have restricted to animal tales

There is no point fitting in some uninteresting Tales in between the animal tales that really a reader wants to read
