"From the Five Rivers" is a 1901 collection of short stories by Flora Annie Steel. Flora Annie Steel (1847 - 1929) was an English writer who notably lived in British India for 22 years and is best remembered for her books set or related to the sub-continent. Like most of her work, these tales are set in colonial India and offer a unique insight into what life was like at that time. The stories include: "Gunesh Chund", "The Blue Monkey", "Shah Sujah's Mouse", "Suttu", "At a Girls' School", "In a Citron Garden", "Nur Jehan", "Shurfu the Zaildar", "Songs of the People", "Plough Song", etc. Other notable works by this author include: "Tales of the Punjab" (1894), "The Flower of Forgiveness" (1894), and "The Potter's Thumb" (1894). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
