Kenneth Anderson (1910-1974) was a hunter, nature enthusiast and chronicler of wildlife. His hunting expeditions involved several close encounters with man-eating tigers, rogue elephants, leopards and other wild animals. He wrote about eight books and sixty short stories which recount many of his real-life adventures and hunting exploits in the jungles of South India. In 2000, his collected works, The Kenneth Anderson Omnibus, were published in two volumes. He spent most of his life in Bangalore, where he was employed with an aeronautics company. Anderson's invaluable contribution to shikar literature in India continues to inspire scores of wildlife lovers.
