Publisher's Summary

A classic coming-of-age story which has held generations of fans spellbound 

Rusty, a 16-year-old Anglo-Indian boy, is orphaned, and has to live with his English guardian in the claustrophobic European part in Dehra Dun. Unhappy with the strict ways of his guardian, Rusty runs away from home to live with his Indian friends. Plunging for the first time into the dream-bright world of the bazaar, Hindu festivals and other aspects of Indian life, Rusty is enchanted...and is lost forever to the prim proprieties of the European community.

This special edition marks the 60th anniversary of this award-winning book, written when the author was just 17. Poignant, heart-warming and an absolute classic, this book is forever a joy to read.
