Description

The test of a good story, Ruskin Bond says, is when a writer is able to catch a young reader’s attention from page one, preferably paragraph one, and hold it to the end. Each one of the stories that he has included in this collection pass this test, and with flying colours.

Spine-tingling, unputdownable tales, this, collection takes you from a woman’s struggle against the elements in the cold, snow-swept Prairies, to the thick of a jungle where a man bored with hunting animals decides, instead, to hunt a fellow human. Filled with conflict, suspense and adventure, Thrilling Tales: A Selection of Hair-Raising Adventures is a page-turner from beginning to end.
