A Book of Simple Living: Brief Notes from the Hills by Ruskin Bond

By Ruskin Bond

'Mist fills the Himalayan valleys, and monsoon rain sweeps around the hills. occasionally, throughout the day, a poultry visits me-a deep pink whistling thrush. She perches at the window sill, and appears out with me on the rain.'

This own diary documents the numerous small moments that represent a lifetime of harmony-with the self, the flora and fauna, and associates, relations and passersby. In those pages, we watch a wild plum blossom and the moon arise among deodar timber; we listen a redstart whistle and the rain drum on a tin roof; we realize the aftermath of loss and the comfort of outdated companions.

'A e-book of easy dwelling' is a present of good looks and knowledge from India's so much enjoyed, and such a lot understated, writer.
