Item description for Winter India by Eliza Scidmore...
Winter India was written by an American woman traveller who had spent long periods in Asia, particularly in Japan, Java, China and India. The book was published in 1903 during the British colonial empire but Eliza Scidmore trascends that period of history and mentions places and ceremonies and gods and goddesses which are part of the India of all times. In her book one feels transported to Delhi, can learn about Madras and the Seven Pagodas, visit Calcutta in Christmas week and feel in touch with the spirit of buddhism reading about her description of the historical site of the bo-tree, learn about Shiva and Benares and travel in the imagination through the Khyber Pass with the old silk route caravans.
