The twin hill stations of Mussoorie and Landour were established by the British in the early nineteenth century as a respite from the heat and dust of the Indian summer on the plains. Even today, these places continue to attract visitors by the hordes, thanks to their salubrious climate and leisurely way of life. While Mussoorie is more 'touristy' and bustling, Landour is a quiet getaway for those looking for a break from city life. Much has changed over the years, but both these towns still retain an old-world charm, adding to their appeal. This book takes the reader on a journey through the history of these towns, from the late eighteenth century - when Frederick Young, the founder of Mussoorie and Landour Cantonment, was born in Ireland - up to India's Independence. With beautiful photographs, evocative illustrations and fascinating snippets of local lore, Mussoorie and Landourbrings alive the stories behind these charming hill stations like no other.
