A great classic of the Ceylon jungles, also depicting in vivid language the life of the Veddas of Ceylon, a fast dying-out aboriginal race which yet retains many of its primitive customs. This is a record which has a historical and ethnological value to an exceptional degree. After Professor Seligmann wrote his monumental book on the Veddas, there has been nothing like R.L Spittels book this subject. It is the approach of a sensitive and observing mind, , in which scholarship and science are legitimately subordinated to the musical undertones which sustain the writing from beginning to end, thus making a fine jungle book because it is also a genuine artistic creation. The human touch is introduced in the revealing story of the last remnants of the pure Vedda race and no one who reads this book can say that he does not know the variegated and endless beauty of Ceylons jungle trails.
