    1. The Lonely Tiger was a wonderful collection of shikar stories set in the heart of India.After Allen got discharged from the British armed forces in 1942 for a head injury, he decided to buy a large estate in what became Madhya Pradesh in independent India. This book is a collection of anecdotes and experiences he had while running this estate. There are tales of tigers, leopards, monkey-snatchers, secret moonshine-brewers, and a rampaging boar or two.I've always loved shikar stories, there's an [...]

The book also provides an understanding of certain animal behaviours and also comments on the language of the jungles. It is a nice read and a must read for those who want to learn about wil [...]
