A Song of Many Rivers by Ruskin Bond

91kjsRcfkoL.jpgA Song of Many Rivers by Ruskin Bond is a collection of twelve short stories by Ruskin Bond published by Rupa Publications. I received the book from the publisher and would like to thank them for the sam.

The Blurb:

Between the boy and the river was a mountain. The thickly forested mountain hid the river, but I knew it was there and what it looked like…I had heard of it, of the fish in its waters, of its rocks and currents and waterfalls, and it only remained for me to touch the water and know it personally.

The snowy Himalayas, where the Bhagirathi, the Mandakini and so many others arise, the towns and villages that lie by their banks, the legends and stories that are as immortal as these waters, all come alive in A Song of Many Rivers. Prepare to get swept away by the tales and narratives about these beautiful, majestic and beloved rivers in this collection of some of Ruskin Bond’s most compelling river stories.

My take:

The author has narrated stories about rivers and some stories of people living near them. The stories have been written in simple English and are easy to understand.
