This popular book in the Travelers' Tales Destination Series
weaves a tapestry of sensory images, profound transformations, and
compelling history about a land that has lured and puzzled
travelers for centuries and continues to do so today. Now in a new
edition, Travelers' Tales India includes 49 stories and dozens
of sidebar anecdotes covering the sprawling canvas of the country,
from the high Himalayas to the dense jungles teeming with wildlife,
to the chaotic inner cities and deceptively slow-paced villages.
Among the stories: Jan Haag participates in a traditional Indian
wedding, noted chef Madhur Jaffrey feasts on food for body and
soul, Jonah Blank encounters the caretakers of the dead on the
Ganges, William Dalrymple penetrates the mysteries of the Sufi
masters, and David Yeadon takes a bath with 15 million people.
