On a Shoestring to Coorg free pdf With her five-year-old daughter as travelling companion, Dervla Murphy, veteran of solo journeys by mule and bicycle to some of the most inaccessible places on earth, sets off for Bombay, with plans to meander through southern India. Dervla and Rachel travelled by boat and by peasant-filled bus, making myriad freinds along the way. They fell in love with Coorg, the smallest of India's provinces, and stayed there for two months. Dervla Murphy's account of this remote mountain paradise, famed for its landscapes, scented with honey, cardamon and oranges, brings to life the beautiful landscapes and friendly people of a little-known part of the sub-continent. Murphy also records the harshness of Indian peasant life but also the warmth and spontaneity of the Indian people.
