In this book, in an inimical way, the author takes you to small towns and villages, through mountainous passes and difficult terrain, and across resilient rivers and sparkling streams, retelling legends and lore. Read about the many legends surrounding the Yamuna and Ganga, as well as little-known rivers like the Suswa; about Bisnu, a child of nature, who is forced to move to the town of Musoourie after a bad spell of draught; and about a sprightly young girl called Bina, who along with her friends, goes on many an adventure in the hills, which turn out to be lessons in bravery and friendship.
