This volume comprises the autobiographical works of three men who had a special relationship with the Indian Jungles - Jim Corbett, Verrier Elwin and Salim Ali.
In My India, published when the author was 77, the legendary Jim Corbett writes with sympathy and concern of the people of the Indian foothills, their life, traditions and folklore. It vividly evokes the environment in which his dramatic tiger encounters took place.
The Tribal World of Verrier Elwin is the story of one of the greatest scholars and champions of India's tribal peoples. The hugely controversial Elwin's moving autobiography received the Sahitya Akademi award, which noted its 'sincerity, courage and charm, revealing a mind in which Western and Indian idealism were uniquely blended'.
The Fall of a Sparrow is the autobiography of India's most celebrated ornithologist, Salim Ali. From his 'first bird' at the age of ten, to birding expeditions in almost every area of the subcontinent, Salim Ali's account of his life and the changing world in which he lived is imbued with his characteristic charm and verve.
These works of enchantment and discovery, in an omnibus edition with an Introduction by Ramachandra Guha, will appeal to a wide general readership.
