A remote realm hidden among the mountain recesses of southern India, the glory and misery of the rajahs.
A journey to Coorg, a remote corner of the Karnataka state in India, which garnered the interest of the British East India Company all the way back in the 18th century.
Through the memoirs of engineer W. Lambton, Lieutenant E. de Warren, chaplain J. Hough and naturalist E. Cotteau, the volume tells of the exploration of this region as a thrilling adventure of the White Man-conqueror exploring a savage land with its hostile morphological configuration.
