Memoirs of twenty years in India by Eugene John O'Meara (1874-1962), a British physician who served with the India Medical Service. The account covers the period 1898 to 1918. Everything in India interested him from its jails to it jungles, from polo and pig-sticking to the Taj Mahal. He vividly describes battles against famine and epidemics, the thrill of tiger hunting and the terrible wounds which the big cat's claws can give, the caste system, and many other things his life touched. He was a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons and was awarded the OBE in 1919 for his services.
