This book was a solid “worth the read” and allows the reader to experience a small region of northern India that few Westerners ever get to. The book reads much like a travelogue from the early 1900s, where the author has to explain in anthropological fashion what he sees around him. This mostly works as I, like most readers, has no context for the Khasi Hills in northern India. Chapters switch between this more academic look at the region and the author’s own travels. Read to widen your knowledge of our world from a curious and empathetic writer.
