Ruskin Bond's The Book of Nature is a compilation of stories written by the loved Anglo-Indian writer, Ruskin Bond. This book contains writing related to the nature and the wide, open skies. The author, who lived in beautiful hill stations from his childhood onwards, uses his personal experiences to describe nature in the astounding way it appears to him.
This book talks about leopards going down the alleys of Mussoorie after nightfall and the first monsoon rain that brings about with it the whiff of fresh life. The author's lyrical style of prose succeeds in depicting the emotional and mental state of the author. Ruskin Bond's The Book of Nature talks about the author's life in a village, the serenity of his calm surroundings and the passion in his soul.
By writing about scenarios involving the chittering of insects during the evening and sagely banyan trees, the author offers readers the opportunity to become immersed in the verdant, green fields of their minds. The author's experiences with nature are lucidly presented in a mellow way, such as the time when he writes about the lone bat who gave him company through the night.
Ruskin Bond's The Book Of Nature was published by Penguin India in 2008 and is available in paperback.
