Just So Stories: including 'The Tabu Tale' and 'Ham and the Porcupine' & original illustrations by Rudyard Kipling (Aziloth Books) | Between the Acts | A Passage to India | The Man Who Would Be King and Other Stories | The Secret Agent | The Secret Agent | Midnight's Children | Captains Courageous
Kim, the poor orphaned son of an Irish soldier stationed in Lahore, straddles both worlds. Neither wholly British nor completely Indian, the young boy searches for his identity in the country where he was born; but at the same time, he struggles to create an identity for himself. Cunning and street wise, Kim is mature beyond his thirteen years and learns to move chameleon-like between the two cultures, becoming the disciple of a Tibetan monk while training as a spy for the British secret service.
Far above the average adventure story, Kim will captivate Kipling devotees as well as fans of tales brimming with foreign intrigue and treachery.
