This book is the English translation of one of the finest Bengali adventure novels – Chander Pahar- written by Shri Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay in the 1930s.

Set in 1909-10, this is the story of a young Bengali man Shankar. His cravings for a life full of adventure and excitement brings him to the Dark Continent -- Africa. From a small village in Bengal to Uganda to Salisbury, his journey is a veritable roller-coaster which takes him through many intimidating forests, mountains and deserts.

There are dangers at every step; many of which catch Shankar unawares. A ferocious volcanic eruption, a labyrinth of caves and savage maneating lions – Shankar is in for a life-altering experience, only if he manages to stay alive!

Will Shankar survive unscathed? Would he ever be able to return to his home? Racy and thrilling, this African odyssey will virtually transport the reader to some of the most exciting and perilous locations of the continent.
