Author(s): Rudyard Kipling
There can be few people who have not heard of Rudyard Kipling's classic "Jungle Book", although most will know the name from the Walt Disney movie rather than the original book of jungle stories. This title features both the volumes of Kipling's "Jungle Book" stories along with his other Indian classic, "Kim".
Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay, India, in 1865. Educated in England at the United Services College in Devon, he returned to India as a young man, working on the Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore. He would go on to write many volumes of poetry, including the famous Gunga Din and If, as well as the Just So Stories, Puck of Pook's Hill, Stalky & Co and numerous others. He died in London in 1936.
