"Tusk and Stone" is the story of Arjun, a boy approaching manhood who is a Brahmin, a member of the priestly and scholarly class in Indian society. While traveling, Arjun's caravan is waylaid by robbers who kidnap his beloved sister and murder his guardian uncle. His life is spared. From then on, the story is about Arjun's survival, his search for his sister, and his travels from one experience and opportunity to the next.
Once captured and sold, Arun loses his privilege as a Brahmin and must learn much about humility and prejudice. He is instructed in the care and training of elephants and becomes a mahout and legendary warrior. At the height of his fame he is captured again, and as a slave finds unexpected fulfillment and inspiration as a stone carver. Malcolm Bosse is a master of description and historical detail, and gives the story a remarkable sense of contemporary reality even though it is set many centuries ago.
