Product Description

A new story from internationally renowned author Amitav Ghosh The Living Mountain is a cautionary tale of how we have systematically exploited nature leading to an environmental collapse.

Recounted as a dream this is a fable about Mahaparbat the Living Mountain; the indigenous valley dwellers who live and prosper in its shelter; the assault on the mountain for commercial benefit by the Anthropoi humans whose sole aim is to reap the bounty of nature; and the disaster that unfolds as a result.

The Living Mountain is especially relevant today when we have been battling a pandemic and are facing a climate catastrophe: both of which are products of our insufficient understanding of mankind's relationship with nature and our sustained appropriation and abuse of natural resources. This is a book of our times for our times and it will resonate strongly with readers of all ages.
