AbstractHistoryArchive Description

When Harry Went to India is the story of three friends journeying to India. Harry, a Kimberley cameleer, went with Cas and Susan to see how Indian people lived and worked, especially those who owned camels. Through Harry's eyes we see the lives of rural Indians and hear the unexpected comparisons he makes with those of his own people. It is an informative, poignant, funny and beautifully illustrated book which celebrates the similarities and differences between two very vibrant cultures and countries. When Harry Went to India will be enjoyed by readers of all ages.
