From the Publisher:
Kim is an orphan who earns his living begging on the streets of Lahore. One day he befriends an aged Tibetan Lama who, although content to live simply in India, is a rich and powerful abbot in his own country. When the Lama recruits Kim as a disciple and then funds his education at an English public school an adventure begins that will take the unlikely pair to the Himalayas on a thrilling journey of espionage and enlightenment.
Author Bio
Rudyard Kipling
Rudyard Kipling was the creator of short stories, poetry, and novels. In 1907 he became the first English writer to win the Nobel Prize, although much of his writing for adults has since been labeled imperialist, fascist, and racist. Kipling was born to English parents and lived in India until he was 6 years old. At that time, he was sent to England, where he lived with a foster family, although he made frequent trips back to India. He married an American woman with whom he moved to the United States, where he wrote some of his best-known works for children including "The Jungle Book" and "Kim". He eventually returned to England where he wrote "Just So Stories". He wrote his last book for children, "Rewards and Fairies", in 1910--many believe that the death of his daughter, Josephine, may have been a factor in this decision. He won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1907.
