Hong Kong Local Colour 1998 9622172997 / 9789622172999 Second Edition Paperback New 5 1/2" x 8" 
Unread, unmarked. Profusely illustrated. Index. The foothills of the Himalayas have served as a summer retreat for centuries, but it was the British who made them popular, building dozens of hill settlements in the 19th Century, taking a perverse delight in weather that was "just as wet, windy and wretched as England." Countless balls, dinners, picnics and sporting events created a resort atmosphere that contrasted sharply with the surrounding jungle. Today the hill stations are as popular as ever, still British in origin, but now transformed into a thoroughly Indian institution. Here's the first book to survey the hill stations in detail, from Kashmir to Ladakh to Bengal, Rajasthan and Utter Pradesh. National parks, wildlife reserves and opportunities for trekking are emphasized, together with assessments of dozen of hotels and restaurants. Special topics cover such subjects as Darjeeling tea, the mountain railways, deforestation and the hill people of Meghalaya. A selection of literary extracts include Sir Richard Burton on the role of women in Sindh society, Winston Churchill assessing the military capabilities of local tribes, and a satirical short story about tiger-hunting by Saki. ; 296 pages
