CAPTAIN YOUNG’S GHOST

299.00 284.05

‘If you live in the Indian hills, it is only a matter of time before you meet a ghost…’

Vintage storyteller Ruskin Bond has created many unforgettable characters in his novels and stories, but perhaps the most memorable and unusual among them are the ghosts and spirits that haunt the hills and foothills of the Himalayas—the bazaars and bungalows, jungles and gardens of Mussoorie, Shimla, Nainital, Dehradun. These ghosts are not always horrific; they are mysterious and often benevolent, or lonely creatures looking for company among humans. Collected in these pages are new stories written specifically for this volume—including ‘Captain Young’s Ghost’ and ‘The Black Bird’—and classics such as ‘A Face in the Dark’ and ‘The Haunted Bicycle’. Here you will find the spirit of a captain from the British army who, on some nights, returns to the town he founded and never outgrew; a little boy, long dead, who continues to guide passers-by on treacherous mountain routes; a beautiful young girl from long ago who seduces young men with her song, and another who longs for the warmth of a happy family.

Set in the hills and foothills of North India—the perfect haunt for ghosts and spirits—this collection by the master storyteller will leave you spellbound.
