Jungle Lore is the closest Jim Corbett ever came to an autobiography. It is in this book that one sees the real soul of the man and his love affair with the people, jungle and animals of the kumaon hills.
This book narrates Jim Corbett's first forays with catapult and gun and his first adventures. Also present in this book is his obsession with the ways of the jungle, about which he was continually striving to learn more. But at the heart of the book is a cry for sensitivity to the fragility of nature and a lament for mankind's divorce from the environment.
Today the import of Jungle Lore is as vibrant as it ever was, the morality even more seminal.
