In addition to over fifty short stories, the selection includes all the longer works by Ruskin Bond. Also included is The Sensualist, a novella which created controversy and has not been published in book form before.

In a career spanning four decades, Ruskin Bond has mapped out and peopled a unique literary landscape. This omnibus edition brings together all his published fiction, remarkable for its charm and quiet wisdom.

A well crafted bunch of short stories, long stories, novellas and novels, this volume brings to life the special flavors of life in the hills and goes on to strengthen the Rudyardian thesis that the smell of the Himalays if it once creeps into the blood of a man he will return to the hills again and again and will love to live and die among them.

Ruskin Bond is a writer who has, with intense depth and sensitivity, absorbed the essence of the polyglotic and culturally syncretic contemporary Indian society.

This collection is a fitting tribute to one of the best storytellers of contemporary India.
