Book Description

About the Book

The Rupa Book of Ruskin Bond’s Himalayan Tales is a collection of short stories, essays and poems around the theme of hills. Bond's unique style has, over the decades, become a tribute to life in the hills. With his keen spirit of observation as he sets his eyes upon people, places, animals and nature, Ruskin Bond deftly captures the mystery and joy of inhabiting a rich natural environment. The haikus and poems interspersed with the stories make for delightful reading. With this compelling blend of fiction and non-fiction, Ruskin Bond treats us to another endearing Rupa selection.
