The Oxford Anthology of Indian Wildlife (Volume I Hunting and Shooting)
Description
About the Book

This volume brings together a wide-ranging selection of writings about the hunt in its myriad forms, from the days of the Raj to the present times. The accounts included here have become a record of vanishing ecosystems, illuminating the Behaviour and ecology of species that now exist only in isolated pockets or have

vanished entirely from the region.

This book provides an insight into the various hunting techniques of tribal and peasant hunters, sahibs and princes, and trappers. The highly evocative essays and anecdotes offer vivid accounts of the hunt, and the thrill and terror involved A rich resource of scholars and specialists, this selection also makes a delectable

book for general readers.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
