Back of the Book:
The name of Rani Lakshmibai, in Indian History, is synonymous with heroism and courage. In extremely adverse circumstances she staunchly refused to give in to the demands of her formidable opponents, the Britishers; fought them bravely with only a handful of allies and family sacrificed her life in the battlefield. Retold in simple language for children from 10 to 12 years of age, here is the gripping tale of the Rani of Jhansi.
