Summary Nepal, 1900. After being shot in the mouth by a poacher, a tigress turned to easy prey: humans. The tigress attacked and killed 436 humans over seven years. Huckelbridge provides a gripping, true account of the Champawat Tiger, which terrified northern India and Nepal from 1900 to 1907, and Jim Corbett, the legendary hunter who pursued it. He also reveals the deeper story of colonialism's disturbing impact on the ancient balance between man and tiger, and Corbett's own evolution into a conservationist who would earn fame for his devotion to saving the Bengal tiger and its habitat. -- adapted from jacket.
