Ruskin Bond - Collected Fiction
by Ruskin Bond

Tales and Legends from India
by Ruskin Bond Description

Ruskin Bond has recreated the turbulent and colorful India of the 18th & 19th centuries with the soldiers of fortune strutting across the subcontinent. The saga of their lives and loves in Delhi, Jaipur, Aligarh, Sardhana, and Lucknow reads stranger than fiction.

Strange men they were. Soldiers, mercenaries, free-booters. European all, braving the heat and dust of India. They fought for wealth, for glory, and for sheer fun. Their glorious and inglorious exploits are full of thrill, romance, and violence.
