Semi-autobiographical in nature, these stories span the period from the author's childhood to the present. We are introduced, in a series of beautifully imagined and crafted cameos, to the author's family, friends, and various other people who left a lasting impression on him. In other stories we revisit Bond's beloved Garhwal hills and the small towns and villages that he has returned to time and again in his fiction.
Together with his well-known novella, A Flight of Pigeons (which was made into the film junoon), which also appears in this collection, these stories once again bring Ruskin Bond's India vividly to life.
