9780006547990: On a Shoestring to Coorg: Experience of Southern India

From Bombay to the hippy beaches of Goa and on to the tropical tip of India, travelling by boat and bus, staying in fishermans huts and no-star hotels, Dervla Murphy and her young daughter, Rachel, explored southern India. En route, they fell in love with the tiny mountain paradise of Coorg, whose landscapes and people form the focus of an entertaining diary.

Review:

Dervla Murphy is the best kind of traveller: observant, high-spirited, open-minded, and impervious to discomfort, and Rachel is a honey ... Their keen appreciation of India's natural beauty makes the tiny province of Coorg appear as an earthly paradise ( Sunday Telegraph)

Here is a new vision of the sub-continent ( Times Literary Supplement)

Dervla Murphy spans the wide range of sensation of India, where moments of great happiness come hard upon frustration and stench ( Guardian)

This is a charming book, bringing to immediate life the beautiful landscapes and friendly people of a little-known part of the sub-continent ( Geographical Journal)

A travel writer of rare heart and freshness ... time in Asia has opened her eyes; it has not closed her heart to the romance of fresh places and faces ( Observer)

Vividly she records the harshness of Indian peasant life, the beauty of the countryside, the warmth and spontaneity of the Indian people ( Lady)

This is a book that makes one realise how much of the real quality of life we in the West have lost ( Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

Dervla Murphy explores the exotic province of Coorg in Southern India with her young daughter.
