:Hugh and Colleen Gantzer live their dream. Colleen had always wanted to fly and she did pilot a plane in the Swiss Alps while Hugh sat behind saying a rosary, just in case! Hugh had longed to see those far away places with their strange sounding names so he joined the Indian Navy. Hugh took premature retirement when he was the Judge Advocate of the Southern Naval Area and Hugh and Colleen decided to become a travel-writer-photographer team. Suddenly, things changed. They found themselves surfing on the great travel wave that was sweeping across the world. In quick succession they launched India’s first travel column carried in all editions of a national daily on the editorial page. They hosted 52 weekly episodes of India’s first nation-wide TV travel show, wrote the first travel scripts for dot.coms, won national and international awards, toured India and the world as guests of eager tourism organisations. They have, possibly, visited, photographed and written about more places in India than anyone else in the long history of our land.Once, a greatly revered maternal uncle, who had just retired as India’s Naval Chief, had asked them, “How long more will you continue to travel?” That was before they were invited to a winter ball in Vienna. Today, for six months every year, when they’re not in their Victorian cottage in the oak woods of the Himalayas, they’re still travelling...and they’re still having a ball.

:All four books have been packaged in an attractive slip-cover, giving readers access to ninety-six intriguing Indian destinations. Written in an informal, provocative style, the four books target the new information-hungry, socialmedia generation. These captivate both the mature, informed travellers who look for more insightful encounters, as well as those who ask why things are as intriguing as they are. Who were the strange gods who taught, and danced with, the Dahs in the high mountains of Ladakh? Why were the caves of Ajanta first carved? What is the true meaning of a strange painting in a church in Chennai? and Where did the warrior Nagas come from?
