The Small, Tawny lioness, had sprung from her heavy stool, and seemed to be in mid-air, streaking towards me with claws outstretched.

Your heart races, your mind whirls, what happens next? Another collectible from master anthologiser, Ruskin bond, this volume does more than keep you on the edge of your seat!

Recounted by brave, heroic, lovable characters who survived to tell their ale, these racy stories deal with lives lived on the edge-stuntmen and gamblers, explorers and sword-swallowers, lion-tamers and pilots-all snatched from the jaws of irrevocable harm-and death. Interwoven with clever wit and lively humour, these escapades will transport you to a world filled with excitements, peopled with those who fought against all odds, venturing into the world for the love of thrill and adventure.
