This novel is the inspiration for the highly acclaimed movie of the same name in 1956 starring Ava Gardner and Stewart Granger. You have to be of an age to appreciate that. The story centres around the Anglo-Indian railways at the time of the British withdrawal from the Indian subcontinent. It is a great piece of historical fiction.

The book is without a dust jacket and is bound in cloth covered green-blue boards. The spine is slightly sun-faded and stained from being handled, The front boards are stained on the bottom and left edge, while the back board is also stained. There is an owner's name written in pencil on the first front end page. The corner of the back board is a bit bumped and the spine is shop worn on the top and bottom. The pages themselves are solidly intact and absolutely crisp and clean. It is 394 pages long and 8 1/4" by 5 1/2" in size. It was written by John Masters and published in Canada by the MacMillan Company, Toronto, Canada as well as the Viking Press, New York.
