Title Review

Showcasing some of the best pieces, Birds of India: A Literary Anthology takes a fresh look at natural history writing in India and demonstrates the role of birds in human life -- from religion to entertainment, mythology to science, and from superstition to wisdom. Over 60 of these selections are mostly from writings in English, except a few translations from Indian languages and include extracts from ancient, medieval, as well as modern works of some of most well-known Indian as well as British naturalists and popular writers and public figures. The introductory overview places the writings in their historical context and biographical head-notes, listing of sources, and Further Reading, add value for the readers -- nature lovers, birdwatchers and others.
