Inhaltsangabe: The sins of the father ... Charles Taylor was raised in the typical British manner of the late Victorian era: distant from his father, George, a civil servant in India. The two grow closer as Charles ages, but after his father?s untimely death, he finds himself on a path of discovery about George?s life and his role in the pacification of tribes near the Tibetan border, especially his father?s encounter with a powerful shaman and his son. A past as hidden as the Apatani valley, which protects its secrets well. Praise for Into the Hidden Valley: With echoes of A Passage to India, this is a wonderful new addition to the literature of British India. Blackburn gives us vivid descriptions of the land, people's faces, their customs, their dress, their families and their emotions, lending insight into the motivations of both colonial officials and tribesmen. His beautiful prose helps the reader grasp the misunderstandings and clash of worldviews behind the tragic violence of the Raj. A gripping and delicious read. ?
