The Himalaya, the abode of eternal snow and ice, throne of gods, the amphitheatre of the cosmic dance of Shiva-Parvati and the peaceful resort of sages, is well known for its dense and extensive forests and multitude of wild animals. Here is the dreamland of naturalists. Few know, however, that above the forests and crowded valleys, the Himalaya is an inconceivably gigantic landscape garden, laid out on a most lavish scale, by mother Nature - rock garden, emerald green grassy meadows and colourful flowers that bloom amidst the vast wilderness, where few men ever set foot.
This book attempts to introduce some of these incomparable gems of flowers to the lover of Nature. The flowers are briefly described in non-technical language and arranged in natural families, with notes on occurrence.
Hope this book will arouse interest in the beauty of flowers and aid identification both by scientists as well as laymen.
