    The Man-eaters of Tsavo and Other East African Adventures
    by John Henry Patterson (1867-1947)

    London, Macmillan & Co., Limited

    Book Digitized by msn
    From 1907


    IT is with feelings of the greatest diffidence that I place the following pages before the public ; but those of my friends who happen to have heard of my rather unique experiences in the wilds have so often urged me to write an account of my adventures, that after much hesitation I at last determined to do so. I have no doubt that many of my readers, who have perhaps never been very far away from civilisation, will be inclined to think that some of the incidents are exaggerated. I can only assure them that I have toned down the facts rather than otherwise, and have endeavoured to write a perfectly plain and straightforward account of things as they actually happened.
    [ END OF FIRST PARAGRAPH ]

    Definitely on my list. I have read some of Jim Corbetts books. I had no idea that he only killed man eaters
