The Indian subcontinent has witnessed drastic changes in its environment, fauna, and flora in this century. This book, written in the late 1970s by Shri R.S. Dharmakumarsinjhi, is a unique record of observations on wildlife spanning more than five decades. The stories in this collection are told from both the shikaris and the naturalists point of view, providing a glimpse into Indian wildlife of the not-so-distant past. Among the numerous first-hand accounts of sights seldom seen by humans in the Indian jungles are the ones of the mating of Gir lions, a fight between two adult Nilgai, and the stalking and killing of a blackbuck by a wolf. Containing a lifesketch of the author and a select bibliography, this edition will be important reading for all those interested in wildlife and conservation.
