About this book

Even as the alarm bells have rung the imminent demise of Sri Lanka's incredible biodiversity, dozens of species have become extinct and vast extents of wilderness fallen victim to the axe. Species, populations and habitats: they are all on the decline. The steadily increasing community of nature enthusiasts have to come to terms with the sad fact that there is less to see, and fewer places in which to see it. Despite this sorry trend, there is still much to be seen and cherished.

In The Untamed Road, Lalith Ekanayake suggests there is yet hope. The product of countless photographic expeditions to just about every corner of the island in which wildlife is to be seen, Dr Ekanayake has captured on film not just remarkable animals and landscapes, but a series of images that portray the drama of the wilderness hunting and being hunted, combat and romance.

The Photographs in The Untamed Road come from every corner of Sri Lanka, especially the "Dry Zone" Yala, Bundala, Wilpattu, Thalaimannar, Mannar, Kalawewa, Minneriya – in addition to key sites such as Sinharaja in the "Wet Zone" . They are a celebration of the remarkable natural wealth the country has to offer lovers of nature, from the idyllic beauty of its landscapes to all that is truly red in tooth and claw.
