Enjoy a fascinating sojourn in a south Indian jungle...Kenneth Anderson never left India. He, a sixth-generation Scotsman, could never part with his first love- the lovable denizens of the forests of South India, with whom he had a fascinating life-long relationship.
In this book, one of the last to issue forth from his pen, he quietly decries our disdain for the wild, while recounting his adventures, which are lucidly written, with a sharp humorous style. When we read this book,
we really feel that we are there with him in the thick jungle fastness, seated around the crackling campfire at night or walking alongside him on a trek, hearing his wise words, hearing the sounds, feeling the presence of jungle creatures about whom he has so many tales, such as 'A Night in Spider Valley' and spooky ones, such as 'Occult Lore and Other Matters'.
This book as well as the other 8 books he had authored are worthwhile and will definitely adorn any respectable book shelf. You must acquire this book and read it. I'm sure you'll go back to it again and again.
If not for the clear, friendly language, then for the sheer palpable atmosphere he creates- a retreat, in these troubled times... Sadly, he died of Cancer in 1974- just 64 years of age.
