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.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
