Himayan Tales (The Rupa Book of Ruskin Bond's )
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.

 

About the Author

Ruskin Bond’s first novel, the room on the Roof, written when he was seventeen, won the john Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize in 1957. Since then he has written several novellas (including Vagrants in the Valley, A Flight of Pigeons and Delhi is not Far), essays, poems and children’s books. He has also written over five hundred short stories and articles, which have appeared in a number of magazines and anthologies. He received the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1993 for our trees still Grow in Dehra, a collection of short stories, and the Padma shri in 1999.
