Product Description

Product Description

In The Room on the Roof, Rusty, a sixteen-year-old Ango-Indian boy, decides he has had enough of the tiny, diminishing European community and his tyrannical guardian, and runs away. To his delight, Rusty finds that life on the open road is packed with excitement and high adventure. In Vagrants in the Valley, which picks up from where the first book ends, Rusty is joined in his travels by Kishen, another 'runaway. As they venture further into the unknown, they discover new friends and participate in more escapades but also begin to understand the complexities of growing up and the boundaries that circumscribe even the freest spirits. Sharply observed, witty and wise, haunted on every page by the sighs, smells, and sounds of Indian, this evocation of youth, innocence, and friendship will be read for a long time to come with deep, lasting pleasure.
