This exquisite collection of tales comes from the land where the Brahmaputra flows. Demons, princes, wizards and peasants inhabit these stories which occasionally allow the reader charming glimpses of rural Assamese life.

These are tales, which have withstood the test of time and have been enjoyed by generations of readers. Joy, sadness, mirth, sorrow-life is represented in all its myriad shades, but there is a common principle underlying all these tales, that virtue has its rewards and wickedness never goes unpunished.
