On one hand, Mountain of the Moon is the story of Shankar, a boy from a remote village in Bengal, who dreams of conquering the Mountain of the Moon in Africa. On the other, it is the tale of Diego Alvarez, the intrepid explorer, his life-long quest for the elusive diamond mines in the heart of the Richtersveldt Mountains. The meeting of these two characters, set apart by age and geography, creates one of the most gripping tales of adventure, of the triumph of the human spirit. Bibhutibhushan’s fascinating tale is a salute to all those who dare to dream and turn that dream into reality.
