Annals of Mewar by C.H. Payne, an abridged version of James Tod’s celebrated Annals and Antiquites of Rajasthan, presents the illustrious history of the Sisodia Rajputs who presided over the land of Mewar and the vaunted fortress of Chittor. Part history, part legend, this is an account of the saffron-robed heroes who guarded Mewar’s frontiers, defending her against repeated invasions, and who valued honour above all else.

A tribute to the spirit of the martial Rajput clan, this book is a colourful narrative-complete with illustrations-about legendary rulers like Bappa Rawal, Rana Sanga, and the jewel of Rajputana, Maharana Pratap. Woven into the chronicles of the land are tales of sieges on the fortress of Chittor, of bards celebrating valiant charges by warriors fighting against overwhelming odds, and descriptions of the Jauhar ritual wherein Rajput women chose death above surrender to the enemy.
