Watching India's Wildlife: The Anthology of a Lifetime

Billy Arjan Singh (Author)
Synopsis One of India's most active conservationists, Billy Arjan Singh has waged an unremitting battle against environmental destruction for several years. His extensive writings are an impressive and reliable record of the large-scale changes in the North Indian countryside, and a tale of one man's efforts to stem the tide of destruction. This volume gathers together some his most significant wildlife writing, giving an overview of a life spent in a uniquely single-minded championing of the cause of conservation. Culled from several published and some unpublished writings, this collection deals with the problems afflicting efforts to create a national park in a developing country, and the implementation of conservation measures in general. Billy's writings on the tiger point to the need for constant vigilance and effort to prevent this majestic animal from being brought to the brink of extinction. He also writes authoritatively about the swampdeer, and about his extraordinary experiments to rear big cats and teach them the ways of the wild so that they could return to their natural habitat. With fifteen colour photographs and a biographical introduction by Geoffrey and Diane Raines Ward, this collection is a collector's item for wildlife enthusiasts.
