Abstract:

"American Sniper meets Jaws: The gripping true account of the Champawat Tiger, the deadliest animal of all time (killer of an astonishing 436 humans), and Jim Corbett, the legendary hunter who brought it down in 1907"--

Nepal, c. 1900: The single deadliest animal in recorded history began stalking humans, moving like a phantom through the lush foothills of the Himalayas. As the death toll reached an astonishing 436 lives, a young local hunter was dispatched to stop the now-legendary man-eater before it struck again. One part pulse-pounding thriller, one part soulful natural history of the endangered Royal Bengal tiger, acclaimed writer Dane Huckelbridge's No Beast So Fierce is the 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. Huckelbridge's masterful telling also reveals that the tiger, Corbett, and the forces that brought them together are far more complex and fascinating than a simple man-versus-beast tale.

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
