Description

About the Book

Novelist, intrepid traveller, barrister-at-law, newspaper editor anduninhibited gossip, John Lang lived for a number of years in pre- andpost-Mutiny British India, and his writings constitute some of the mostvivid records of the time.

Lang describes his meeting with the Ranee of Jhansi-soon to becomethe focal point of the rebellion-as well as his counsel to her; he alsochronicles the wondrous and tragic life of 'Black and Blue', a boy ofmixed British and Indian parentage, and his claims to a peerage inEngland. And, narrating a march in the Upper Provinces, Langprovides an eyewitness account of eight thousand monkeys, gathered inDeobund for a clan meeting.

Written with a historian's sense of detail, a raconteur's delight in theunexpected, and a keen sense of the absurd, John Lang's travel diary isa riveting read.
