Plain Tales from the Hills conjures an intimate, evocative, often funny, and always vital portrait of India. Written by the much-loved Rudyard Kipling, these stories comprise his unabridged observations of the British in India, originally commissioned for the Civil and Military Gazette for whom he worked as a journalist in the 1880s. Incredibly, Kipling wrote these famous and atmospheric pieces before he was 22, and they aptly illustrate his genius as a storyteller whose words and voice have stood the test of time. The raciness of his narrative, the astute detail and insight, the humor and vitality of his characters—all contribute to ensure these stories remain as various and memorable as India itself.

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English poet, essayist, short-story writer and novelist with a particular interest in British imperialism.From AudioFile:
Jornado is a journey, for revenge. With clarity and feeling, Gene Engene reads the story of Clint Evans's search for his wife's murderer. His accents, especially that of Mexican Phillipe, are neither overdone nor too emphatic. The characters are differentiated, and dramatization adds individuality to each one. The story highlights the way that seeking revenge changes people. A traditional story of the Old West well told. S.C.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
