Rain In The Mountains: Notes From The Himalayas brings together some of Ruskin Bond’s most beautiful works from his years spent at the foothills of the Himalayas in the town of Mussoorie.
These are musings on his natural habitat, scenes from his daily life, in both prose and poetry. Though written in a simple language, they manage to create vivid imagery and capture the essence of mountain life. Some of his writings that are featured in the book are Once Upon A Mountain Time, Sounds I Like To Hear, How Far Is The River, and After The Monsoon.
