Summary of the Book

The early hours of falling night in the jungle, with its cool breeze laden with unknown sweet smell was intoxicating. It was a glorious moonlit night…

I had a straight fall from several hundred feet. I squatted to hold the rock but there were loose stones; the reflection of the sun on the distant snow-covered peaks was dazzling the eyes…
