Fabulous book for planning a trip to India

Jump to last reply

We took our first trip to India two years ago (six weeks in India), and I bought this book because I had heard it was highly recommended. Now, I am trying to put together another trip, and I am once again drawn to this book because of the fabulous descriptions of the areas that the author gives. Her writing is so evocative of the areas and is enjoyable reading that reads more like a travelogue in many ways. In addition, her information on such things as foods and religions is excellent. Despite the fact that the book is now fifteen years old so hotel recommendations are no longer relevant, I put it in my "must" list for pre-trip planning and reading at home. I got mine for less than $5.00 total used. I just thought I'd pass this along since most people browsing for a guidebook wouldn't ever come across this gem.
