Description

The Master of Gujarat is the English rendering of K.M. Munshi's enormously successful historical novel Gujarat-no Nath, first published in the early part of this century. Several generations of Gujarati readers have enjoyed reading it and, many readers frankly confess, reading it over and over again!

King Jayasinghdev Solanki, Queen Mother Meenaldevi, Prime Minister Munjal Mehta, as well as King Navghan and the dashing Prince Khengar of Saurashtra, are well-known figures in the medieval History of Gujarat. Based on certain historical incidents of that period, some folklore of Saurashtra, and his own intimate knowledge of the culture and history of Gujarat, Munshi wrote this immensely entertaining novel, which is now being made available to book- lovers for the first time in an English rendering.
