Description

This is a book of travels through this wide and wonderful country called India. There is scarcely a corner of India that the author fails to peep into in this very perceptive tour guide dating back to the first decade of the last century.

‘Peeps At Many Lands: India’ is a travel book—travels through this wide and wonderful country called India. From the Himalayas to Rajasthan. From the Gangetic plain to the Deccan plateau. From the cities of the Mughals (Delhi, Agra, Sikandra etc.) to the Court of the native Prince of Udaipur. From the Bazaar to the Indian village. From the holy cities to the jungles. There is scarcely a corner of India that the author fails to peep into in this very perceptive tour guide dating back to the first decade of the last century. The bewildering variety of race, customs, creeds, religions and traditions which make up India are very beautifully showcased.

The sheer colorfulness of the country is well understood and hence well presented by John Finnemore. Mortimer Menes has provided twelve illustrations that really liven up the text and bring out the true flavor of journeying through this great land.
