When I came to live in Mussoorie just over fifty years ago, I lived in Maplewood Lodge, a cottage below Wynberg-Allen School. Its windows opened onto a well-forested hillside. So naturally, I wrote about the trees, wildflowers and birds, and other creatures who lived among them. Then circumstances forced me to move higher up the mountain and for the last thirty-five years I have lived on the top floor of Ivy Cottage, in Landour Cantonment. Here there are windows too and they open onto the sky, clouds, the Doon valley, and range upon range of mountains. And from this perch on the hillside, I feel that I am part of the greater world, mother India as well as the natural world of planet Earth.' In this charming collection, Ruskin Bond talks about his various encounters with the natural world. From the chorus of cicadas to the song of the whistling thrush, from his love for seashells to his favorite place on earth, Bond details why he has such an overwhelming love for nature. This book is for all who cherish the green world, just as Bond does. Features - A brand new book celebrating Ruskin Bond's 82nd birthday - Written by India's bestselling author, this book makes for a perfect gift for readers of all ages - A wonderful way to introduce the wonders of the natural world to children
