  • ""Plain Tales from the Hills, Rudyard Kipling's first collection of short stories, established his reputation and brought India to the British imagination ... Originally published for a newspaper in Lahore, when Kipling was a journalist, the tales were later revised by him to re-create as vividly as possible the sights and smells of India for readers at home."--P. [4] of cover."@en
  • "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. All written before he was twenty-two years old, these amazing and colourful stories are evidence of Kipling's propensity for story-telling, and are as various and memorable as India herself."@en
  • "Plain Tales from the Hills, published in 1888, is the first collection of short stories by Rudyard Kipling. Out of its 40 stories, "eight-and-twenty", according to Kipling's Preface, were initially published in the Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore, British India, (now in Pakistan) between November 1886 and June 1887.

  • "The forty-two stories in this, Kipling's first collection of tales, originally published in 1888, were written and set in India."
  • "Originally written for the "Lahore Civil and Military Gazette", the stories were intended for a provincial readership familiar with the pleasures and miseries of colonial life. For the subsequent English edition, Kipling revised the tales so as to recreate as vividly as possible the sights and smells of India for those at home. Yet far from being a celebration of Empire, Kipling's stories tell of 'heat and bewilderment and wasted effort and broken faith'. 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."
