KIRKUS REVIEW

Not a new biography of Kipling, but a set of "interpretations, emphases and connections" touching on the genesis of Barrack-Room Ballads, The Jungle Book, Just So Stories, et al. Abundantly illustrated with 19th century bookplates, Kipling's own drawings, and photos of Imperial India and other likely locales.
