Nepal, 1900: A lone tigress began stalking humans, moving like a phantom through the lush foothills of the Himalayas. As the death toll reached an astonishing 436 lives, young local hunter Jim Corbett was dispatched to stop the man-eater before it struck again. Akin to a murder mystery, Dane Huckelbridge's gripping true account of the "Champawat Man-Eater," the deadliest animal in recorded history, which terrified northern India and Nepal for seven years. In addition to tracing how colonialism disrupted the balance between man and beast, Huckelbridge also chronicles how Corbett became a legendary hunter, and in time, an ardent conservationist protecting the very tigers he once hunted.
