"First published in 1888, Plain Tales from the Hills was Kipling's first volume of prose fiction. His vignettes of life in British India give vivid insights into Anglo-India at work and play, and into the character of the Indians themselves. Witty, wry, sometimes cynical, these tales withtheir brevity and concentration of effect are landmarks in the history of the short story as an art-form. "from GoodReads
