Synopsis Hammir of Ranthambor was the bravest of all brave. He was ambitious, resolute, indomitable, unflinching-undaunted, chivalrous, lionhrearted and a man of words which he kept till last, and even today he is well know for that.

A lioness gives birth to a cub only once; once alone is the word of a good man given; once only does a plantain bear fruit,  a woman is anointed only once with oil for marrige and once alone did Hammir gives his irrevocable promise.

In the present volume, the author gives us a connected history of the fort of Ranthambhor from the earliest period, of Chauhan dynasty and hammir, the invasions of Allauddin Khalji and Akbar, to the time when it came under the erstwhile Jaipur State.
