This is a study of the cheetah, now extinct in India, through the ages of Indian history. The product of a decade of extensive research, this is the only work which traces the history and ecology of an animal species from the pre-historic period to recent times. Using a range of sources, fromprehistoric cave paintings to oral testimony, it provides a comprehensive account of the animal's interaction with man through the ages, charting its path to extinction and exploring the possibility of its reintroduction in India.
