About Book

Most of the larger animals found in the Indian sub-content and its neighboring region of Tibet are pictured in this small book. They have been put into ecological groups showing possible encounters so that the reader can guess what may happen next.

I. In the first group of ten pictures we find mostly the animals which may be seen around houses and farms by people living in the midland, region of the Himalayas from 2,000 to 8,000. Except for the red panda, at the end, the animals are common enough to be seen by observant farm children in the regions where they are found. The panda is now rare and needs to be protected.

II. Section II shows the animals found in the lowland Terai, which in Nepal would mean mostly Chitwan. The wild buffalo are found more to the east near Bardia but all of the other animals pictured are fairly common in are of the protected area and often outside the parks as well.

III. In the third group of ten pictures, we find animals of the high mountains from Kashmir and Tibet to Solukhumbu and Bhutan. Here are many of the large animals known only to the hunter, nomad, trekker or zoo visitor, familiar animals from little known places.

IV. The fourth group of ten pictures extends the area farther into India's lowlands to the south, east and west. They are pictured in possible but sometimes unlikely groups which can tell a story.
