Description

Sumptuously illustrated with twenty-one drawings by the author, this unique book fills a long-felt gap in literature on India.

An impressionistic and lyrical account of journeys, it offers fresh insights on the well-trodden paths, but is also about little-known treasures that are still of easy access. Descriptions of exquisite temples will inspire and pulsating crowds will excite; vast mountain ranges will view for attention with anonymous beaches and atolls of extraordinary beauty. The humbleness of villages will move one as will scenes of yet unspoiled nature, and chance encounters with a colorful and varied people will enrich one's view of an ancient culture in the throes of change.
