Along the Ganges
The River Ganges has a thousand names. Hindu priests regard it as a sin to call her a river at all. She is a goddess, the source of the world, her waters holy and healing and still sold to Hindus all over the world.
Ilija Trojanow travelled along the Ganges, from the source, where it breaks free from the eternal ice in the Himalayas, to the great cities, by boat, by bus, on overcrowded trains. He visited the great Hindu festivals and talked to those who warn of ecological disasters. His colourful report describes a country between ancient traditions and astonishing modernity and the holy river that crosses it for hundreds of miles.
'A lyrical homage to India's holiest, moodiest, foulest river ... it is a treasure of a book, a must have for anyone spending time on the Ganges and wanting to get to know her better." Financial Times
