The Oxford Anthology of Indian Wildlife (In 2 Volumes)

Mahesh Rangarajan (Editor)
Synopsis The jungles of the Indian subcontinent, home to an amazing array of wildlife, attracted many hunters and naturalists, several of whom have recounted their encounters with animals in the wild. This anthology brings together a wide-ranging selection of writings, covering mainly the period of the British Raj, about the hunt in its myriad forms. Hunting anecdotes and essays may seem out of place in the present age of ecological awakening; but accounts left behind by hunters offer insights into the bahaviour and ecology of species which now exist only in isolated pockets or have vanished entirely from the region. Celebrations of hunting exploits have become a record of vanishing ecosystems.
