Mountain of the Moon is a story about taking a chance—a dare which, with its wings of imagination, leads you to the silver lining after a storm. Shankar, an ordinary young boy from a rural Indian village, crosses many skies and seas to explore an altogether different world, that is Africa. This land of unknowns never fails to entrance him with its whole gamut of mystery, magic and mayhem. But is all that toil worthy of the journey? Moreover, will Shankar get to the peak of his mountain of dreams?
Bibhutibhushan Bandopdhay, who himself had never crossed the boundaries of his dear land, took just another leap where a little faith blends with a magical fantasy, creating a kingdom of its own. But who would have thought that this kingdom would live in the core of the heart of the generations to come? Relive this classic adventurous narrative in English that will lead you again to an era of picaro, when one dared to dream.
