Plain Tales from the Hills conjures up an intimate, evocative, often funny portrait of India. These unabridged observations of the British in India and Indian life were originally commissioned for 'The Civil and Military Gazette' where Kipling worked as a journalist in the 1880s. Incredibly, Kipling wrote these famous and atmospheric pieces before he was twenty-two and they aptly illustrate his genius as a storyteller whose words and voice have stood the test of time.
