Summary "This personal narrative about life in a remote desert region of western India tells of how love of place and love of person find their equilibrium in a world far removed from modernity. Yet this small, distant land of kingship and pastoral life is rapidly being eroded by the new India of commerce and industrialization"-- Provided by publisher
