The Oxford India publication presents a collection of the noted anthropologist’s writings, giving the reader a picture of the lives, rituals and customs of the tribals of India. The essays are selected from Elwin’s previous publications, including “Leaves from the Jungle”, “The Tribal World of Verrier Elwin”, and “The Religion of the Indian Tribe”. The essays detail Elwin’s experiences in Madhya Pradesh, Bastar, Orissa and in the North east frontier, where Elwin finally settled, and are inspired by the heartfelt love that the author had for the tribal communities of India.
