Book Description
Between the sea and the Plains of Bengal, on the easternmost coast of India, Lies an immense archipelago of islands. Some are vast and some no larger than sandbars, some has lasted through recorded history while others have just washed into being. these are the Sundarbans. Here there are no borders to divide fresh water from slat, river, from sea, even land from water. Here for hundreds of years, only the truly dispossessed braved the man-eating tigers and the crocodiles who rule there, to eke a precarious existence from the mud. Here, at the beginning of the last century, a visionary Scotsman founded a utopian settlement where people of all races, classes and religious could live together.
