Hugh and Colleen Gantzer are pioneering travel writers and travel documentary filmmakers. Looking Beyond shares its name with a series of half-hour episodes that they did for Indian national television, documenting their travels the first of its kind in English on Indian television. In Looking Beyond they invite the reader to join them as they travel around India and the world: meeting the man who spoke 'Indian'; coming across the Sher Khan Parivar in Kipling Country; trying to order a Scotch Broth - or anything at all - from a 'cooker' in Switzerland; looking for werewolves in Moravia; and even witnessing the birth-pangs of a nation. Complete with pictures to go with every place they describe, the book brings together the best of their well-known, well-loved travel writing in one collection.
Colleen Gantzer have to their credit four travel books, and the scripts and voiceovers for 57 travel documentaries on national television. They have won two PATA Gold Awards and the Best Travel Writer Award from the Indian Association of Tour Operators. Hugh Gantzer is a former Commander in the Indian Navy. The Gantzers spend six months every year travelling in India and abroad.
