About this book

This remarkable book contains not only detailed and comprehensive information on the island's wildlife but also aspects of its cultural history since the third century BC.

The author grew up in Ceylon in the 1930s and returned on several visits between 2000 and 2006, during which he assembled material for his engaging, highly informed narrative.

I was simply enthralled reading 'From Ceylon to Sri Lanka'. It is well written in easy to understand language and communicates a passionate love for our country and its people, its plantations, and its magnificent wildlife. I think this book should one day find its way to being a prescribed text book for all youngsters so that they can discern the truth about the glorious heritage that was Ceylon. -- Ned Dean, Canada
