In this riveting account of one of the greatest river-systems in the world, we accompany the Tsangpo-Brahmapu as it emerges from the icy height of Tibet. Its journey through some of the most awesome and inhospitable Himalayalan ranges had been shrouded in mystery till unveiled by intrepid adventures during the British Raj. Entering India's north-eastern portal as a mighty and turbulent river, it formed an integral part of ancient trade and migratory routes.

This book seeks to sketch a profile of this fascinating river, and acquaint the reader with the society which evolved on its banks, the heights of civilization it attained and the contributions made by it to the pan-Indian mosaic. Once the stage for epic battles for independence, the Brahmaputra's role and potential in the national economy continue to be immense.
