Nature's Spokesman M. Krishnan and Indian Wildlife
Nature's Spokesman M. Krishnan and Indian Wildlife
Description
Back of the Book

All in all, once you've gone through this collection, there are only two things that need to be done: begin to read it all over again and hanker for more'
-Dileep Padgaonkar, Times of India

Writer, naturalist, 'ecological patriot' and avid nature photographer, M. Krishnan had an astonishingly wide range of interests. His work spanned six decades, and his nature writings are among the most readable ever written in English.

Nature's Spokesman showcases Krishnan's finest essays: on large mammals, little creatures, nature in temple art and folklore, nature's desecration and its conservation, all described in his inimitable style-wry, lucid and humorous. Embellished with Krishnan's own sketches, this landmark volume, edited by Ramachandra Guha, also includes a biographical introduction.

'It is clearly time that a new generation was introduced to Krishnan's timeless essays. I am glad that this pleasurable but onerous task has been undertaken by that other great stylist and nature lover, Ramachandra Guha'
-Indian Express

'This timely volume of fine writing by a pioneering environmentalist will reintroduce Krishnan to many new readers and also earn the gratitude of his older fan club'
-Outlook
