Wild India
Long renowned for its wild places and remarkably rich natural history, the Indian subcontinent remains one of the world's greatest wildlife destinations. A valuable current record of India and Nepal's wild places and wilderness areas is presented in Wild India. The late Guy Mountfort was an authority on all aspects of species preservation. His discerning account of the ecological and human history of the region, which focuses on the pressures facing India's irreplaceable natural heritage, has been updated by leading Indian naturalist and conservationist Hashim Tyabji. Wild India surveys the great diversity of plant and animal life from the remote Karakoram range in Ladakh to the rainforests of the far west of Rajasthan, and the jungles and swamps of Assam and Manipur. Here, among numerous other species, are the magnificent Kashmir stag and the shy musk deer, the rare lion-tailed macaque and the Nilgiri tahr, as well as the Asiatic lion - in its last bastion in the Gir Forest - along with the golden leaf monkey, the one-horned rhinoceros, and herds of elephants and buffaloes. Guy Mountfort helped create national parks and wildlife reserves in India, Nepal, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh. As a founder of the World Wide Fund For Nature, he led the international campaign to save the tiger from extinction. Gerald Cubitt, one of the world's leading natural history photographers, has provided a majority of the photographs for Wild India.
