On Jim Corbett’s Trail and Other Tales from the Jungle


This book is nature writing at its best from the heart of India’s forests. Dr. Johnsingh takes the readers across India’s national parks and tiger reserves and as the reader takes in the sense and smell of the forest, the author shares his environmental concerns for the area and possible solutions for conservation. Jim Corbett has been a lifelong inspiration for the author and the first section of the book traces Corbett’s paths along the forests as they were decades ago. According to John Seidensticker who has written the foreword, “Going for a walk in an Indian forest with Dr. A.J.T. Johnsingh is simply one of the finest experiences you can have in life. There is his good humour. There is the joy in his steps when he is walking in the forest. He walks to live, and lives to walk – and it shows. And you feel good because he is so at home in the forest. He is ever alert; completely aware of all that is going on around him…. Dr. Johnsingh is legendary for his ability to find and see wildlife. Nothing goes unnoticed…  And if you are impressed with his enthusiasm on a walk in the forest, just wait until you go looking for mahseer with him.”
