‘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.’  Housed in original dust-wrapper designed by Leonard Rosoman.  End-papers slightly toned.  Previous owner’s name in blue ink to front end-paper, otherwise near fine.
