Description

Nuggets from Coorg History encapsulate the history of Kodagu from 1600 to 1956 in twenty engaging stories. The prominent community of this landlocked province of coffee and cinnamon-the Kodavas, or the Coorgs though fiercely independent and of warrior class, never actually ruled their land.

They were fractious which made them an easy target for foreign domination. Kodavas, now a progressive community, were unlettered until the British introduced education in 1834. Hence theirs is a mainly an oral history passed down over generations. In this book, Belliappa brings to life the dramatis personae that influenced and shaped the destiny of Coorg.
