Little Willie

Stories of the hills of Mussoorie, the winding and bustling lanes of Calcutta and the tigers of Hazaribagh were regular features of Willie’s early years as a boy in India. Bill’s vivid recollections of his childhood and the vibrancy he describes in India seem magical.

In Bill’s collection of memories, you will be guided through Calcutta’s famous maidan, up through the rolling pathways leading to his beloved Mussoorie and across the planes of Hazaribagh, where tigers roamed and snakes called home.

The collection is a warm tribute to a loving family, a recollection of a mischievous young boy working out the ways of the world and also a reality that many faced, first during WWII with Japan’s threatened invasion, and then following the partition of India: movement away from the familiar to the new and different.
