An engrossing collection of hunting stories, anecdotes and reflections in natural history of India.

Written in the 1970s, the account of Indian wild life in this book are narrated from both the shikari's and the naturalist's point of view. There are anecdotes of shikar as practiced in Indian princely states and the author's own hunting experiences, as well as first-hand accounts of sights seldom seen in the Indian jungles.

This book also includes descriptions of the now rare Indian Bustard and other fauna and avifauna in which the author was specially interested.

Containing a life-sketch of the author and a select bibliography, this edition is essential reading for all interested in wildlife and conservation.
