The test of a good story, Ruskin Bond says, is when a writer is able to catch a young reader's attention from page one, preferably paragraph one, and hold it to the end. Each one of the stories that he has included in this collection pass this test and with flying colours. Spine-tingling,, unputdownable tales, this collection takes you from a woman's struggle against the elements in the cold, snow- swept Prairies, to the thick of jungle where a man bored with hunting animals decides, instead to hunt a Fellow human. Filled with conflict, suspense and adventure, Thrilling Tales: A selection of Hair-Raising Adventures is a page-turner from beginning to end. Thrills and Spills 'The small, tawny lioness....had sprung from her heavy stool...and seemed to be in mid-air, streaking towards me with claws outstretched.' Recounted by memorable characters who survived to tell their tale, these thrilling stories about pilots, stuntmen, gamblers, explorers, sword-swallowers and lion-tamers, deal with extraordinary lives that have been lived on the edge. Interwoven with clever wit and lively humour, they open the doors to a world filled with adventure and excitement, peopled with those who refused to be content with an ordinary life.
