Description

Land and Sea Tales brings together a collection of Kipling's strikingly honest short stories. As with many of his other works, these tales take on the themes of bravery and honour in the face of adversity, and more often than not in the face of war - perhaps Kipling's greatest preoccupation. With an international cast of characters set in a host of exotic and dangerous locations, this rich selection includes such tales as 'An Unqualified Pilot', 'The Burning Of Sarah Sands' and 'An English School'. Originally written for the scout and guide groups that Kipling was so dedicated to, now some seventy years on, these tales are eminently suitable for readers of all ages.

Author Biography

Born in Bombay in 1865, Rudyard Kipling retained a deep love for the colour and exotic richness of India throughout his life and this passion affected much of his writing. Best known for his masterpieces The Jungle Books, Kim, and Captains Courageous, Kipling also penned an extraordinary number of powerful and evocative poems and short stories including the remarkable Just So Stories. The first Englishman to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, Kipling commands a place amongst the finest of English writers.
