Om: An Indian Pilgrimage free pdf In "Om" Geoffrey Moorhouse records his travels across South India in 1992, from the places of worship he visited to the wide range of people he met on his way - the pilgrims and supplicants, agnostics and holy men and women, politicians and the last survivor of the pre-Independence princes. An honest and unflinching account of a deeply personal spiritual quest, "Om" also brilliantly evokes the frustrations and delights of India. 'A remarkable book...Humble and sensitive, with a complete lack of pretension, "Om" is both a lesson in how to write about a foreign culture and an inspiration to read' - "Independent".

About Geoffrey Moorhouse

Geoffrey Moorhouse has been described as "one of the best writers of our time" (Byron Rogers, The Times), "a brilliant historian" (Dirk Bogarde, Daily Telegraph) and "a writer whose gifts are beyond" category" (Jan Morris, Independent on Sunday). His numerous books -- travel narratives, histories, novels and sporting prints -- have won prizes and been translated into several languages: To the Frontier won the Thomas Cook Award for the best travel book of its year. In 1982 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, and in 2006 he became Hon DLitt of the University of Warwick. He has recently concentrated on Tudor history, notably with The Pilgrimage of Grace and, in 2005, Great Harry's Navy, which has just been followed by The Last Office: 1539 and the Dissolution of a Monastery. Born in Lancashire, he has lived in a hill village in North Yorkshire for many years.
