Synopsis

This is the story of a boy and his weasel, a bird and a snake, India and the British Empire. Rudyard Kipling's dramatic tale, here excerpted from the greater volume of The Jungle Book, is the story of the loyal mongoose, Rikk-Tikki-Tavi, and the lengths to which he must go to protect his adoptive human family.
 

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.
