Upon the Hillock describes life in the wild hills and woodlands of Kerala in India. A place where snakes, elephants and tigers are a common threat to the people that live there.
This story follows the life of a princess, Rajalakshmi, who is banished from the royal household in disgrace after her conniving cousin, the Kings niece, ensures she is caught in a compromising position with a young man.
She is sent to live in a compound run by a lecherous man who has designs on winning her affections. However, after becoming ill with a bout of smallpox, she is left in the woodlands to die. She survives, however, after being found by a native called Kodanddi, himself heir to the throne of his tribe.
They marry and have a son, a male heir to the King's throne... and then soldiers start turning up, and the couple worries for their son's life.
Will the niece succeed in her plan? Kodanddi and Rajalakshmi go into hiding with their son and Kodanddi's mother to stop this from happening. Will the young heir survive?
