'... sheds vivid and dramatic light on this unsung Indian province. A richly rewarding read.' -- John Keay

In 1991, Paul Hyland made a mesmerizing pilgrimage to the region of India adopted by his forebears and ignored by guidebooks -- the Godavari delta. He journeyed to the home of his cousin Joy, last of five generations of missionaries and traders to work beside the sacred river. Hyland's account gives vivid glimpses of South Indian life and death. He voyaged upriver, in his ancestors' wake, to the formidable gorge where the Godavari breaks through the Eastern Ghats. In hill jungles he left Hindu India far behind and trespassed upon an older tribal world full of delight and danger.
