This is a gem of travel literature and an important insight into Sri Lankan history at the end of the British era. Still brings his insights as a tea planter, an archaeologist and a hunter to this personal reflection on his time spend in the jungles if Sri Lanka. His Spenglerian theory of the jungle locked in an eternal battle with civilisation, retreating and returning like a tide through the ages, is reflected in the Hindu beliefs of the Tamils whom he writes about.

“For the jungle dissolves and recreates over and over and over again, as the Hindu philosophers perceived millenniums ago and built their religion on it. All that we know of things that died more anciently than a month ago, is written in stone or brick or earthwork, or, perhaps more durable even than these, in legend.” 1 likes
