How this book was received:
In my view Dr. Spittel’s VANISHED TRAILS is something more than a novel. It is the Saga of Veddas, a Saga related by real brand.
Dr. N. D. Wijesekara in TIMES OF CEYLON
…..the ordinary reader will find this work delightful and deeply moving.
V. Elwin in ILLUSTRATED WEEKLY OF INDIA
We are greatly indebted to the author for his fascinating book which is rich in first-hand information.
Dr. Greafe in MYINDIA
VANISHED TRAILS fulfills its purpose of making us understand the Veddas better while we derive genuine pleasure from a true story that has a quality lacking in some of the most thrilling fiction. The illustrations by Gordon Davey – young artist who was on war/service in Ceylon and whose work impressed discerning local critics – enhance the value of the book.
