The book gives an introduction to the various ecological zones of India, its varied fauna and flora and a brief description of animals and their habitat.

After Africa, Indian peninsula has the richest diversity of life forms on the face of the earth. The landmass of 329 million acres of the country and its water bodies sustain extremely variegated plants and animals. Over 45,000 species of plants and 75000 species of animals contribute to the rich biological diversity of the great peninsula.

Wildlife has played an important role in the life of a common man in India, since times immemorial. Indian civilization has always accorded due respect to the eternal blessings of Mother Nature. Right from the time of the Indus Valley civilization, Indian people have loved and respected the endowments of nature like forests, flora, fauna, and animals. Most animals were revered in Indian mythology as the vahana or vehicle of various gods and goddesses or as an incarnation of the deity itself. They are still in worship.
