The Oxford Anthology of Indian Wildlife (Volume I Hunting and Shooting)
Description
About the Book

This volume brings together a wide-ranging selection of writings about the hunt in its myriad forms, from the days of the Raj to the present times. The accounts included here have become a record of vanishing ecosystems, illuminating the Behaviour and ecology of species that now exist only in isolated pockets or have

vanished entirely from the region.

This book provides an insight into the various hunting techniques of tribal and peasant hunters, sahibs and princes, and trappers. The highly evocative essays and anecdotes offer vivid accounts of the hunt, and the thrill and terror involved A rich resource of scholars and specialists, this selection also makes a delectable

book for general readers.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
