"This visual tour of India looks at the faces, landscapes, buildings, and traditions of this widely varied country—the seventh largest in the world, though with the second largest population. The first thing you notice about India is its colors, according to the introduction, and these photographs from the mountainous north, the plains, the desert region, the coast, and the peninsula offer ample support for that claim. The images range from the Gateway of India, built at Mumbai - Bombay for the visit of King George V, to sacred ceremonies of Hindu, Muslim, and Buddhist worshippers. The books in the Golden India series are popular introductions to Indian culture. 84 pages"
