Description

Bengal Lancer is a complete one off. On one hand this book is a love affair with the spiritual traditions of India while on the other it is the memoir of a carefree young cavalry officer in the halcyon days of the British Empire. Francis Yeats-Brown proves himself exceptionally good company, both funny and self-deprecating. He is devoted to his ponies and his dogs, passionate about polo and pig-sticking, and endures some extraordinary adventures in the First World War. However it is not his final destination that is memorable, but his idiosyncratic journey to establish some kind of truth.

Publisher Review

One of the most remarkable books in modern literature I have known no other instance of the genuine psychological record of any intimate touch of a western mind with the mind of the East. Rabindrath Tagore, Spectator
