About the Book: 

Where there is a forest, there must be adventure. There must be little feet with minds like Hummingbirds, ever on the move. There must be pug marks that bring to mind stripes of fire and night that once ruled the jungle. The Karlapat Sanctuary in Kalahandi district of Odisha brims with the munificence of Nature as bubbling streams criss-cross a friendly gradient and lush, rolling hills smile with yellow mustard, warm like the sun. Come explore the wilds and villages of this ancient land through thirteen tales and let them awaken your bond with Nature.
