1891. Illustrated by J.M. Gleeson, Charles Livingston Bull and the Author. Kipling, English short-story writer, novelist and poet, who celebrated the heroism of British colonial soldiers in India and Burma, was the first Englishman to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. The editor has created a text from a selection of Kipling's works intended to reach the hands of children in lower grades, kindergartens, and nurseries. She writes in the preface that Kipling is one of the most virile writers of our age. He lays India at our doors. He makes the jungle as attractive as a theater. He is to India what Muir is to the great glaciers, what Lanier is to our southeast coast. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
