Rusty, a sixteen-year-old Anglo-Indian boy, is orphaned, and has to live with his English guardian in the claustrophobic European part of town, 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...Written when the author was himself seventeen, this moving story of love and friendship, presented in an exciting new format with an evocative introduction by best-selling author Anita Nair, will be enjoyed by a whole new generation of readers.
