Product description

Product Description

‘Remember the old road,
The steep stony path
That took us up from Rajpur,
Toiling and sweating
And grumbling at the climb,
But enjoying it all the same...’
From ‘Remember the Old Road’ by Ruskin Bond

Sometimes, a journey can be of discovery. And, in this compilation, Ruskin Bond has discovered hair-raising stories of other people’s journeys, taken many many years ago. Bond describes the old track from Rajpur to Mussorie, surrounded by Oak trees and colonial buildings in ‘The Kipling Road’. Braving blizzards and bandits, M. Huc takes a momentous journey to Ladakh in ‘Journey to the Forbidden City’, while Osa Johnson, the only woman adventurer in the book, gives her awe-inspiring account of cannibals in ‘A Woman Among Cannibals’. Be it travelling for shikar or search for new lands or just for survival, this book is packed with action!

About the Author

Ruskin Bond has been writing for over sixty years and now has over 120 titles in print—novels, collections of short stories, poetry, essays, anthologies and books for children. His first novel, The Room on the Roof, received the prestigious John Llewellyn Rhys Prize in 1957. He has also received the Padma Shri (1999), the Padma Bhushan (2014) and two awards from Sahitya Akademi—one for his short stories and another for his writings for children. In 2012, the Delhi government gave him its Lifetime Achievement Award. Born in 1934, Ruskin Bond grew up in Jamnagar, Shimla, New Delhi and Dehradun. Apart from three years in the UK, he has spent all his life in India and now lives in Mussoorie with his adopted family.
