The Mountain of the Moon: A Classic Tale of Adventure in Africa

Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay (Author) Santanu Sinha Chaudhuri (Translator) Suddhasattwa Basu (Author)

The mountain of the moon is a story about taking a chance dare which, with its wings of imagination, leads you to the silver lining after a storm. Shankar, an ordinary young boy from rural India, crosses many skies and seas to explore an altogether different world—africa. There, he joins a seasoned Portuguese Explorer, Diego alvarez on a daring mission. But is the destination worth the toil of the journey? Moreover, will Shankar get to the peak of his mountain of dreams? The Storyline, with a series of adventures, is a testimony to the eternal virtues of courage, curiosity and compassion. It gradually becomes a tantalizing tale of an unusual friendship that evolved in the spectacular but dangerous African forests and grasslands teeming with mysterious wildlife, people and their folklores. Experience this classic adventurous narrative in English that will lead you again to an era of picaro, when one dared to dream. This book has also been adapted into a popular Bengali movie.
