Description

“A Tale of Indian Heroes” is a 1923 work by Flora Annie Steel. Within it, Steel has retold in English the stories of the Mahabharata and Ramayana, which together form the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India. A masterful rendition of these famous Indian stories, “A Tale of Indian Heroes” is not to be missed by those with an interest in Indian history, culture, and literature. Contents include: “How King Shuntanu Married River Goddess”, “How the King’s Promise was Broken”, “How a Vow was Vowed”, “How Bhishma won the Three Princesses”, etc. Flora Annie Steel (1847–1929) was an English writer who lived in British India for 22 years and is best known for her many novels set in or related to the country. She was perhaps most interested in the classes of Indian society, and giving birth to a daughter afforded her the opportunity to interact with local women and learn their language. This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with an introductory essay from “The Garden Of Fidelity – Being The Autobiography of Flora Annie Steel” by R. R. Clark.
