  • "A stunning compilation of Kipling's 'best bits'. Plain tales from the hills' are stories based upon Rudyard Kipling's experiences as a British man living in India in the late 19th century.

He writes brilliantly and hauntingly about the barriers between the races, the classes and the sexes; and about innocence, not transformed into experience but implacably crushed."
