Spanning the history of this country and the life of the people from their very beginnings in the cave about the 127,000 year ago to the end Kandyan era in the 18th century, this book has been initiated by Nihal Fernando, founder of Studio Times Limited. It is a book where words and images come together to weave the story of this land and its people. Extensively researched and with a comprehensive glossary and bibliography, the text is academic. Yet it is beautifully written by SinhaRaja Tammita-Delgoda, and together with the photographs, the book not only educates and enlightens, but also inspires. The publishers hope that this book will prompt the people of this country, particularly the children, to think about their heritage and what they are doing to it and to themselves, before it is too late.
