"In the Permanent Way - And Other Stories" is a 1897 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: "Shub'rât", "In the Permanent Way", "On the Second Story", "Glory-of-Woman", "At the Great Durbar", "The Blue-throated God", "A Tourist Ticket", "The King's Well", "Uma Himavutee", "Young Lochinvar", "A Bit of Land", "The Sorrowful Hour", 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.
