Description
 
Roy Moxham (au). This is the story of a quest, sparked off by the chance purchase in a bookshop of memoirs by a 19th-cent. Brit. civil servant. The memoirs referred in passing to a great hedge that by the 1850s ran for 1,500 miles, as part of a Customs Line which divided India. Manned by 12,000 men to extort the hated Salt Tax, it was one of the greatest constructions in human history, yet today it is forgotten. Moxham set off to India to find out whether any part of it still stood. He unraveled the story behind the hedge & its place in the commercial enterprise of the Raj, & discovered the last remnants. This extraordinary cross between a travel book & an historical detective story offers a view into the motivations & admin. of Brit. Imperial India, together with one manís obsession.
