A Foot Through the Kashmir Valleys by Marion Dought
Kashmir, with its open vale or "happy valley" famed for its beauty and with its surrounding hills and valleys, is a tourist and pleasure report. It is one of the loveliest places in the world and in summer is carpeted with flowers. The author of this book Marion Doughty gives a vivid picture of grandeur, charm, superb climate, scenery and seasons, fascinating forest, beautiful mountains, duck-shooting, Mughal Gardens, and of numerous places of tourist interest. Description about Archaeological remains, people, snow-crowned hills, customs, culture, local marriage songs, folk songs is given in an enchanting language. It is a restful, unfettered, unique like amid all the beauties of a country decorated by nature in her most varied manner, and that is like a dream when one is in it, that haunts one with the reality of an obsession when its snowy peaks and flower-filled valleys have been exchanged for grey skies and grimy towns. The learned author has considerably increased in stock of knowledge about the beautiful valley of Kashmir. With the inclusion of nearly forty illustrations, the book has become more important and interesting.
