Escape from Java

And Other Tales of Danger
A collection of stories by

Join intrepid heroes and dauntless heroines in their quest for survival against earthquakes, fire, floods and bombs! Live life on the edge with five stories of danger and adventure. Flee with Romi as he rides his cycle straight into the river to get away from a fearsome forest fire; listen in to Ruth s hair-raising story of escape from rioting sepoys during the uprising of 1857; read about the author s miraculous flight from Java as Japanese planes bombard the city; witness the havoc wreaked by the deadliest earthquake ever in Rakesh s town, Shillong; and watch Sita combat a fatal flood. Written in Ruskin Bond s inimitable style, with doses of humour and excitement, these extraordinary stories are simply unputdownable.
