“[Davidson] may be one of the great adventurers of our time.” —The Boston Globe
“Davidson is as natural a writer as she is an adventurer.” —The New Yorker
“Breathtaking . . . absorbing to even the most sedentary of bookshelf-travelers.” —Publishers Weekly
“As courageous on paper as on desert sands, Davidson will both disturb and exhilarate readers with the acuity of her observations, the sting of her wit, and the candor of her emotions.” —Booklist
“She writes beautifully with humour and understanding and her book is all the more powerful for being unflinchingly honest. Travel writers be warned—this is a tough act to follow.” —India Today

I think this book is also another sign post for our times. Human evolution is well underway and in India, a place with so much diversity and crowding, this book provides a very educational glance at some of the problems facing India in relation to people groups, resource use & land management and the survival and thriving of people groups.
Again, a very informative look from one of my favorite (female) authors!
Clearly the time of tribal people all over the world has come to an end. We do not have the space or time to accomodate them plus there are too many people in the world currently and the poorest least organized will be the first to go. This point she really brings home strongly. Over populated India is a microcosim of the rest of the world. The rest of us are further down the line but still we are all in the same line....
How the author was able to live in these conditions I don't understand!
Would gladly read other books by this author.
