Just finished reading "Panther's Moon" by Ruskin Bond, an excellent collection of 10 stories of human encounters with animals. By the time you finish reading this book, you start looking at animals in a different light. I liked all the stories.

Wierd, Amazing and sweet encounters of humans with animals which you will think about and cherish long after you've kept it down. This book is different yet familiar. Loved reading those stories full of Feelings and a world full of unknown surprises.

For those who enjoy forest stories, hunting or adventure stories go for this. Though this book is for 9+ ages, is good read for the simple and narrative style. At times I felt as though I am reading Jim Corbett book, but Ruskin Bond's narration is different and I am sure, you will enjoy reading the same.

If there is a storyteller who is able to please the readers of all ages, it has got to be him.

All the stories described here will give you quite an idea how the Himalayan region is. You will be able to feel atmosphere of the region.

Stories are replete with emotions and dwell on encounters between animals and humans.

Once you start reading a story, you will not be able to put down the book until you finish it.
