He wrote his first novel, The Room on the Roof, when he was seventeen which won John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize in 1957. Since then he has written several novellas, over 500 short stories, as well as various essays and poems, all of which have established him as one of the best-loved and most admired chroniclers of contemporary India.
In 1992 he received the Sahitya Akademie award for English writing, for his short stories collection, "Our Trees Still Grow in Dehra", by the Sahitya Akademie, India's National Academy of Letters in India. He was awarded the Padma Shri in 1999 for contributions to children's literature. He now lives with his adopted family in Landor near Mussoorie.

Fascinating and true stories of travellers who were caught up in unexpected events or tricky situations: a South American revolution, a plane crash in the desert, a cannibal conclave, a journey with a mad prospector, an encounter with pirates. Journeys into the unknown, which often result in a struggle for survival.
This is the ninth Rupa anthology compiled by Ruskin Bond. Like the others, it is full of good writing. Here are stories to charm or thrill true tales of travellers who often found themselves in tight corners, and how they got out of them!"
