About the Author
Ashima Kumar is an environment and wildlife enthusiast who shares the boundary of her living space with the Aravali hills in the NCR region. Leopards, blue bulls, jackals, hyenas and a wide variety of birds have always had an unhindered access to the water hole on the grounds of her family home. She started exploring Corbett National Park about twenty years ago with her environment conscious husband Kumar Karun Krant. Corbett has virtually been her training ground where she gained her first-hand knowledge of the ways of nature and wildlife. Her long exposure to this 'First amongst all National Parks of India' finally prompted her to pen down her experiences. She has been trekking extensively in the hills of Uttarakhand and contributing her travel accounts to many publications. This is her first book.
Dushyant Parasher was trained to be a graphic designer and initially worked as a creative director in advertising during the mid nineteen seventies. Now for the past thirty years he has been a hard-core environmentalist, wildlife photographer and writer. His tireless campaign against the degradation of Valley of Flowers in Garhwal Himalayas during the late nineteen seventies finally resulted in the valley being declared a 'National Park' to preserve its unique bio-diversity. In 2003 he received Sir Edmund Hillary's 'Himalayan Environment Trust Award for valuable contribution to the cause of Himalayan environment'. In October-November 2010 he was part of an international expedition that travelled down the Brahmaputra River through Tibet-India and Bangladesh. It was a two month long, 2,800 km river journey done in inflatable boats. With seven pictorial books on environment and wildlife to his credit, he is one of the most prominent nature and wildlife photographer of India.

Once you start reading its impossible to put this book down- The forest and its stories pull you in making you want to turn the pages faster and faster. Wonderfully photographed in its majesty, Corbett has a million stories to tell, and each photo does that. At times you feel you were with the author and photographer as they wrote and clicked what they saw. The book clearly aims at capturing all dimensions of what is Corbett- from its history to the animals which make it what it is, to the impact of deforestation and the call for conservation, to the threat to wildlife and the need to save the Tiger.
I recommend the book to everyone who has an interest in wildlife, forests and exploring the jungles of India. To those who visit/want to visit Corbett- its a must read- you will see Corbett through a different lens now, literally! And to every parent who buys this- let your child know about animals and the importance of keeping them safe in their habitat- the forests of India.
This book is a real treasure for the nature lover as well as for any readers.
Wish this book will get appreciation of the readers across the globe .
" Me, being a wildlife photographer accept the fact that it's a must watch book with an excellent photography and brilliant write up worth going through.
