Read full description of the books:



‘[…] I saw that he was staring intently at a leaf blowing over the surface and drifting towards him. When it came within reach he started to dab at it with his right front paw, but with a touch so gentle that his pad was the merest caress on the tiny tip of its curled-up sail. From that moment, I always called him the Lonely Tiger.’

After being discharged from the British Armed Forces at the end of the Second World War, Hugh Allen—and his widowed sister Babs—decided on impulse to settle down on an estate in Mandikhera, an obscure village in central India, hoping to live the quiet life of a farmer. But even as his crops flourished, they suffered the attentions of the hungry denizens of the surrounding forest. Allen was thus compelled to take up arms to defend his crops and, occasionally, the villagers of Mandikhera.

The Lonely Tiger recounts Allen’s encounters with animals of all kinds: snappish tigers in heat; a wounded, angry leopard; a surly, murderous boar; chattering, helpful monkeys; an enraged she-bear protecting her cubs; and a melancholy tiger that has lost his family to poachers.

Hugh Allen narrates his adventures in spare, taut and thrilling prose which brings the jungle—and the hunt—to pulsating life. And while The Lonely Tiger is one of the best shikar books to have been ever written, it is also one of the earliest appeals to conserve India’s rapidly vanishing wildlife. Appearing in print after a hiatus of more than half a century, The Lonely Tiger is a must read.

GABRIEL

This book changed my life!

DAVID

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.
