One of India's finest and most prolific writers, Ruskin Bond has been putting pen to paper for well over six decades. Since The Room on the Roof his award winning debut novel which introduced readers to the unforgettable Rusty, the orphan from Dehradun - Bond has created characters both charming and eccentric, which have endured in popular imagination. And, in what is perhaps his most towering achievement, Bond has brought to pulsing life the mountains, valleys and rivers of Garhwal, as well as the quiet magic of small, tucked away places, in book after book

The Writer on the Hill is a comprehensive selection of Bonds fiction and non fiction. In Masterji, a young man meets his old Hindi teacher on a train platform, in handcuffs. In the excerpt from The Room on the Roof, Rusty stands up to his bullying guardian. Man and Leopard describes, in mesmerising prose, a heartbreaking encounter between man and the wild. And, in Once upon a Mountain Time, Bond creates a charming portrait of his little patch of earth in Mussoorie.

A tribute to one of the most popular and loved writers of India, The Writer on the Hill is also a celebration of the quiet, unhurried life, lived at ones own pace. This volume will delight Bond fans everywhere.
