In 1867 Flora Steel married a member of the Indian civil service,
and for the next twenty-two years lived in India, chiefly in the
Punjab, with which most of her books are connected. She was
interested in interacting with Indian women of all classes and used
the birth of her daughter to meet these women. She encouraged the
production of local handicrafts and collected folk-tales. Tales Of
The Punjab was published in 1894. From the very beginning the young
reader is drawn into the stories. "Would you like to know how these
stories are told? Come with me, and you shall see. There take my
hand and do not be afraid, for Prince Hassan's carpet is beneath
your feet. So now --'Hey presto Abracadabra ' Here we are in a
Punjabi village." Some of the tales included are Sir Buzz, The
Rat's Wedding, The Faithful Prince, The Bear's Bad Bargain, Prince
Lion heart and his Three Friends, The Lambkin, and Bopoluchi
