Synopsis

This collection was first published in 1890, and is a collection of the stories in a few previous volumes -- the book that first made him famous, Plain Tales from the Hills, and other books of stories set in India.

The stories that are in here are good reading, and show Kipling at his ambiguous best -- at the same time the man who was considered to be Poet Laureate of the British Empire, and the man who declined it. There are a number of good stories in here, but Id say start with Plain Tales from the Hillsbefore this, if only so you dont miss Lispeth.

Stories included: The Finest Story in the World, With the Main Guard, Wee Willie Winkie, The Rout of the White Hussars, AT Twenty-Two, The Courting of Dinah Shadd, The Story of Muhammad Din, In Flood Time, My Own True Ghost Story, The Big Drunk Draf, By Word of Mouth, The Drums of the Fore and Aft, The Sending of Dana Da, On the City Wall, The Broken-Link Handicap, On Greenhow Hill, To Be Filed for Reference, The Man Who Would Be King, The Gate of the Hundred Sorrows, The Incarnation of Krishna Mulvaney, His Majesty the King, The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes, In the House of Suddhoo, Black Jack, The Taking of Lungtungpen, The Phantom Rickshaw, On the Strength of a Likeness, Private Learoyds Story, Wressley of the Foreign Office, The Solid Muldoon, The Three Musketeers, Beyond the Pale, The God from the Machine, The Daughter of the Regiment, The Madness of Private Ortheris, LEnvoi
