The Man Who Would be King
And Other Stories
Including the story that inspired the classic movie starring Sean Connery and Michael Caine, these nine dramatic tales demonstrate Kipling’s mastery of the short story and ability to create believable characters and settings, in Britain and the subcontinent.
Kipling and the Sea
Voyages and Discoveries from North Atlantic to South Pacific
Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) often travelled by sea and he had a keen interest in all things nautical. This selection of his letters, journalism, books and poems ranges from a brief account of his first journey from Bombay to England in 1871 to correspondence with Sir Percy Bates, Chairman of Cunard, in the 1930s, and illustrates Kipling’s impressive maritime knowledge and his deep respect for the ocean.
