Intimate, exhilarating writings on adventure, meditation, and life in the captivating wildness of the Himalayan Mountains—with contributions from Amitav Ghosh, Mark Twain, Rabindranath Tagore, Peter Matthiessen, and more. For some, the Himalaya is a frontier against which people test themselves. Others find refuge and tranquility in the mountains, a place where they can seek their true selves, perhaps even God. Over millennia, the mountains have cradled civilization itself and nurtured teeming, irrepressible life. With over thirty essays, this exhilarating anthology offers a dazzling range of voices that reveal accounts of great ascents and descents—from reflecting on a deadly avalanche to searching for a snow leopard and enjoying the simple pleasure of riding a handcar down a railway track. These diverse writings bring to life the spirit of the Himalaya in an unparalleled panorama.

Biodiversity Conservation in the Himalayas is a Compendium of articles written by experts and workers connected with Himalayan studies. The volume covers a wide range of topics having a direct bearing on the health and security of the most outstanding yet fragile Himalayan ecosystems.

In this book the author has come out with an explanation of the age old Socio-culture-Religious, processes of the traditional life style of people who still have formidable beliefs in their kinship and social organization/status. This book has drawn attention to what have in the past been more or less back-waters of the literary main-stream, save for some actions in Gazetteers or in the books left behind by foreign travellers during the British regime, which is still pretty much an unbeaten track for others.
