The Hill Journals of Rumer and Ruskin



Everyone goes to the hills—whether physically, or in their imagination—to find beauty, grace, and the best part of themselves. This set brings together two beautiful journals about living in the hills, alive to nature and the self.

In A Book of Simple Living, India’s most celebrated and beloved author writes about mist rising from the Doon Valley and rain sweeping across the Mussoorie hills; a whistling thrush drying her wings in the sun; the wind humming in the pines; a winter storm; cherry blossoms; the warmth of evenings with family and friends, and the moon coming up between two deodars.

In Rungli-Rungliot, one of the greats of modern English literature records in precise, spare prose the shades of green in the tea gardens spread over and across the hills below Darjeeling; the smell of woodsmoke and flowers; the liberating effects of extreme solitude, and the eternal snows of the Kanchenjunga and Pandim peaks.

This set of two splendid memoir-cum-diaries will be cherished by everyone who loves the hills and mountains, and great nature writing.
