About this book

The panoramic views and rare visuals showcased in The Thar: A Living Desert represent the most remote regions of the Indian Subcontinent's largest desert tract-the real desert west of Jaisalmer, much beyond the dunes of Sam. Moving images of dhanis, khuis, sand dunes and pastures, inaccessible save on camel-back, illustrate the many facets of the desert – vast expanses of sand surging like ocean waves; intricate patterns created by the wind over sand dunes; the myriad colours of the land; glimpses of wildlife; the architecture of ancient and nomads; the swirling dancers and much more of the 'real' Thar.
