SAHYADRIS

India`s Western Ghats - A Vanishing Heritage

Sahyadris : India`s Western Ghats takes you on a visual journey through the Malabar Coast of southern India, along the Arabian Sea, wherein lies a range of mountains known as the Western Ghats, or Sahyadris. Far more ancient than the larger and better-known Himalayas to the north, the Sahyadris harbour the most intact rainforests in peninsular India. Countless species of plants and animals live here, many of which are found nowhere else on earth, and countless of which are still being discovered. Matching this incredible biological richness is the ethnic and cultural diversity of the Western Ghats.

Sahyadris is a brilliant merger of the seriousness of science with the beauty of art and is a compelling portrayal of one of our planet’s biologically wealthiest and most threatened regions.

No one can look at the book and not be entranced and emotionally connected. The combination of photography and text is superb and truly conveys the great diversity of life in both reality and spirit.

George Schaller, Director for Science

"This glorious volume on the Sahyadris is the most beautifully illustrated book of its kind that I have ever seen!
