Book Overview
Winner of the Nobel Prize for literature in 1907, Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) drew upon his experiences in Anglo-Indian Society for much of his writing. This volume presents five of Kipling's best early stories, including The Phantom Rickshaw, a psychological thriller; Wee Willie Winkie, a delightful display of love for children; Without Benefit of Clergy, the poignant story of an Englishmen's affair with an Islamic woman; The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes; and the celebrated title story.
