In Ramayana (written by a poet known to us as Valmiki), William Buck has retold the story of Prince Rama with all its nobility of spirit, courtly intrigue, heroic renunciation, fierce battles, and triumph of good over evil in a length and manner that will make the great Indian epics accessible to the contemporary reader. The same is true for the Mahabharata in its original Sanskrit, probably the longest Indian epic ever composed. It is the story of a dynastic struggle, between the Kurus and Pandavas, for land.

In his introduction, Sanskritist B. A. van Nooten notes, Apart from William Bucks rendition [no other English version has] been able to capture the blend of religion and martial spirit that pervades the original epic. Presented accessibly for the general reader without compromising the spirit and lyricism of the originals, William Bucks Ramayana and Mahabharata capture the essence of the Indian cultural heritage.
