Enjoy this classic work today. These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside Beast and Man in India - A Popular Sketch of Indian Animals in their Relations with the People:

Look inside the book:

But that does not preserve the ox, the horse, and the ass from being unmercifully beaten, over-driven, over-laden, under-fed, and worked with sores under their harness; nor does it save them from abandonment to starvation when unfit for work, and to a lingering death which is made a long torture by birds of prey, whose beaks, powerless to kill outright, inflict undeserved torment.

...The topsy-turvy morality of the East would give a higher place to the Levitically clean Hindu, who would die sooner than eat flesh, but who would also rather die than touch or help a dying man of a low caste near his door, than to the English lady whose life is spent in active beneficence, but who is defiled by eating beef and approaching the dead body of a pig.

...Our modern school-books, in which lessons on animal life and humane animal treatment are wisely included, may do something in the course of time to lighten this 'blind side' of Oriental character, and in a few generations we may hope for an Indian student of natural history.
