The book, 'Tiger Trails and Beyond' is an interesting travelogue and a treasure trove of experiences by the author and her group who have travelled to several wildlife sanctuaries in over a dozen states for the last 15 years, many of them more than once. Their original interest in the tiger and its survival has expanded and evolved to include all wildlife and birds that inhabit our forest spaces and the myriad issues surrounding conservation.
As they continued on their journey, they came across many heritage sites of value, most of these are connected to the wonderful animal, Tiger. Itineraries planned by tour groups remain unfamiliar to most of the tourists. Unlike most books on wildlife, this travelogue highlights sites like the cave paintings in Bhimbetka or the mask-making people of Majuli, the longest river island in the Northeast, that can be included in one's travel plans.
The book is written in an easy style with many anecdotes and photographs while not skimping on valuable trip details such as where to stay or additional places of interest worth visiting. It is hoped that the reader will not only enjoy reading the book and the group's experiences but will also be well equipped to plan such trips with their friends. After all, if a group of senior women can plan and execute such trips on a budget, most others can do the same and experience the wonders of our jungles for themselves.
