The Oxford anthology of Indian wildlife: volume I - hunting and shooting

The jungles of the Indian subcontinent, home to an amazing array of wildlife, attracted many hunters and naturalists, several of whom have recounted their encounters with animals in the wild. This anthology brings together a wide-ranging selection of writings, covering mainly the period of the British Raj, about the hunt in its myriad forms. This book gives an insight into the different techniques of tribal or peasant hunters and trappers, and of princes and sahibs; the methods range from falconry and cheetah coursing to beating and elephant round-ups.
