In a nutshell, even though it appears as a classic coffee-table, it is not just a book showcasing beautiful images in this digital age. It is as authoritative as it is a visual feast. You could say it is the perfect Coffee-table with lots of authoritative, enjoyable text to read.

At 312 pages, with slightly over a whopping 800 images and a 50,000 word text, it looks at India across its biogeographical framework. It looks at the great tapestry of design of nature’s experiments across India’s incredible landscapes, from islands and the coast to a gamut of inland, terrestrial habitats and landscapes from the high Himalaya to the desert and the tropical evergreen jungles. It looks at how we are left with just a handful of tangibly wild places, indeed the very last of them, amid one-sixth of humanity!

India occupies barely over 2% of the planet’s land surface area, and on this exists a biodiversity, a natural heritage that consists of nearly a 1,00,000 known species of fauna that includes an eight of all the world’s birds and fish diversity, a sixth of the flowering plants and so much else.

Journeys through India’s Last Wild Places looks at the country’s biogeographical design through the largest collection of wild habitats/landscapes and biodiversity images, many of which were taken on special journeys during the past 18 months.
