9780143332589: Moon Mountain

Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay s classic Bengali novel Chander Pahar paints a portrait of Africa that is hauntingly beautiful and terrifying at the same time. This adaptation brings Bandopadhyay s vivid descriptions of the vast continent to life, while keeping the essence of the original story untouched.

Join Shankar and his friend Alvarez as they make their way through the rugged wilderness of pre First World War Africa and encounter wild beasts, lost tribes, labyrinthine trails, raging volcanoes, and mythical monsters that seem all too real, in search of the fabled diamond mines of Richtersveld, the mountain of the moon.

A powerful tale of wanderlust and adventure, Moon Mountain is all about giving wings to your dreams.

Book Description Puffin Books/Penguin Books, 2014. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Summary of the Book Shankar Roy Chowdury, an ordinary boy from a Bengali village, secures a job as a clerk in the Uganda Railway and fuelled by his childhood passions and dreams of following in the footsteps of adventurers like Livingstone, Mungo Park, and Marco Polo, he rushes to Africa without a second thought. Africa, he discovers, is a far cry from the adventures he read in his childhood. Man-eating lions who claim the lives of his newfound friends and a black mamba which tries to sink its fangs into him, all of them join together in opening Shankar`s eyes about Africa. In his stay there, he meets, rescues and nurses Diego Alvarez, a Portugese explorer and gold and diamond prospector who entices Shankar with his stories of a rare, uncut yellow diamond. Shankar joins Diego and together they venture into the dangers of Africa to find the diamond, and the promise of treasure most alluring. This story invokes memories of adventure stories of the eighteenth and nineteenth century, and has since been adapted into a movie directed by Kamaleshwar Mukherjee starring Bengali actor Dev. Printed Pages: 160. Bookseller Inventory # 77849
