The author draws from his memories of being brought up in the mountains, pictures that linger like a waft of sweet perfume on a breezy afternoon. With affection, Ganesh Saili writes of his many journeys through these valleys wrapped in the mist, travelogues that evoke details of natural history interwoven into the delicate social fabric of mountain life. The book is a living tribute to the large-hearted sons of the soil, who, down the ages, have yoked the hills together, through thick and thin, good times and bad times, have laughed at the thunder and mocked the skies, have left for the plains only to return, again and again, to the call of the mountains. The Garhwal Himalaya have always been much more than lumps of rock and ice - an enigma, a constant companion for travelers and explorers. Wanderings Through the Garhwal Himalaya is gripping study of this incredible part of the Himalaya which will make you want to be out there in the mountains amid sleet, snow, rain and wind.

    This book helped me cope with my serious withdrawal of the hills but at the same time, it incited in me a need to go and visit the places I haven't been to yet. The journey in the book was not just geographical but also periodic because the photos of the book in their composition reveal a time gone by with hues and tinge of the past.
