Overview for Rusty Runs Away

For several decades, Ruskin Bond's stories about Rusty, a quiet, imaginative and sensitive boy growing up in the hills, have enthralled and entertained young readers. After the immense popularity of Rusty, the Boy from the Hills, a chronicle of Rusty's early years in Dehra Dun, Rusty Runs Away takes Rusty's story forward to his adolescent years. In the five years of his life that this book traces, Rusty's world is turned topsy-turvy as change after change besiege him. After his father and grandmother pass away in quick succession, the twelve-year-old is left in the care of a guardian, Mr Harrison, in Dehra. But after a mysterious incident involving his stepfather and the gardener, he is sent away to boarding school. A restlessness compels him to run away from school, with an ambition to cross the seas and travel the world. But the plan fails, and soon he is back in Dehra, in the care of his strict guardian. Rusty is now seventeen. He rebels and leaves home again, this time for good… For the first time ever, Ruskin Bond's Rusty stories have been put in sequence for the Puffin series, so that they provide a complete chronicle of Rusty's life. Adventurous and thought-provoking at the same time, Rusty Runs Away is a book that children and young adults everywhere will enjoy.
