Synopsis

When his father, a soldier stationed in India, dies suddenly, young Kimball O'Hara is left to fend for himself on the streets of Lahore. A proper English lad, Kim is plunged into an exotic and unfamiliar world of crowded bazaars and noisy markets, gilded temples, sahibs and fakirs, beggars, whirling dervishes, soldiers, and spies. Forced to live hand-to-mouth, Kim must rely on his cunning and wit to survive.

But his life takes a curious twist when he meets a holy man, a lama, who is about to embark on a very mysterious quest: a pilgrimage that will take him across the vast continent, across mighty rivers and up the majestic Himalayas. He wants Kim to accompany him.

But where will the journey lead? For Kim, all roads lead to adventure!

About Rudyard Kipling

See more books from this Author
Rudyard Kipling was best known for his later published novel, The Jungle Book and as a master of shortstories in his time. His writing chiefly took place in India and effectively supported the British imperialistic goals of the era. In the 1800s, much of India’s culture and customs were still shrouded in mystery and to readers back in London the landscape proved great fodder for short tales of horror, in particular, ghost stories. Varla Ventura is the author of The Book of the Bizarre and Beyond Bizarre, and a lover of all things strange, freaky, and terrifying. She is the curator of the Weiser Magical Creatures and Paranormal Parlor series of e-books. Visit her at varlaventura.wordpress.com.
