This book is about the very special "post monsoon" period of Ranthambhore National Park, which in 2011 received a record 1200 mm of rain. Valmik Thapar has known Ranthambhore for 36 years and was amazed at how much monsoon rain the Park had received in 2011. The forest had turned green indays, and all the dry streambeds were literally brimming with water. The monsoon downpour made Ranthambhore look like an "emerald forest". Thapar takes us on a journey over the first days of October 2011 around the Park as it appeared to erupt in a burst of green teeming with life and with its incredible tigers. Captured almost moment to moment, the close to 200 colour photographs meld into one another to create a visual continuityperhaps experienced only in motion pictures.
