Some people talk about nature, others listen to it. Listening can reveal wonders like how to befriend an elephant, how to talk to a tiger and how to live in the jungle. Many such amazing experiences crowd this volume containing the unpublished writings from the early and last years of the well-known naturalist, the late E.R.C. Davidar, besides his acclaimed book Cheetal Walk. A lawyer by profession and a shikari-turned-photographer, he established maybe the first ever private elephant corridor in India, near his jungle-cottage, and undertook the first census of the Nilgiri tahr along the entire range. The book is enriched with photographs from the family album, and not only enlightens us about wildlife and conservation in the Nilgiris, but becomes a memoir of a jungle lover and his family.



Author Bio: E.R.C. Davidar (19222010) was a well-known wildlife conservationist from southern India. He has published several articles on wildlife, a novel based on the life of the brigand Veerappan, and stories for children. Priya Davidar is a professor at Pondicherry University and conducts ecological research in different regions of India. She is actively involved with the conservation of forests and wildlife.



Review 1: "'This is a revetting story of a lawyer-conservationist and his extraordinary love affair with the Nilgiris, which he spent an entire life protecting.'

Review 2: 'Davidar's passion and concern for India's wildlife illuminates every page.'
