Gone Are the Days: Jungle Hunting for Tiger and other Game in India and Nepal 1948-1969 by Peter Byrne

After WW II Peter Byrne decided to find a job that would take him to exotic lands. Using his family's connections, he was hired as a manager on an Indian tea plantation in the Himalayan foothills--a posh job that came with 17 servants and a mansion. On arrival, he was plunged into Indian jungle hunting when the local villagers turned to him with a plea to eliminate a rogue boar. Read his exciting description of how he jumped from a tree and sliced the boar's skull in two while half the adult males of the village stayed in the trees to watch and cheer him on. See how a fortuitous championing of a member of the ruling elite of Nepal during a bar brawl prompted Peter to move to Nepal and become a professional hunter there--a profession he pursued until the close of tiger hunting in 1969. This is the true-life story about a time that now is completely gone--a time when virtually no cars were seen in the remote areas of India and Nepal, a time when tiger, gaur, leopard, sambar, and many other jungle denizens were plentiful beyond description.
