Description

Rudyard Kipling's classic tale of an orphaned boy, a lama on a powerful quest, and two imperialist nations butting heads over one magical country

Set in the former Lahore, India, against the backdrop of an imperialist war between Russia and Great Britain, Kim is the coming-of-age story of Kimball O'Hara, a low-caste orphan boy roaming the streets with a "magic" talisman around his neck. The pendant contains three magic parchments sewn into a leather amulet case -- papers that could whisk him away from the world he knows and trusts.

One afternoon, Kim takes pity on an elderly lama who declares he is searching for wisdom and enlightenment at the River of the Arrow, and becomes the old man's guide, savior, and friend. Together, the odd pair travels the Grand Trunk Road, dodging cutpurses and road agents until the "Little Friend of all the World" becomes a little disciple to the wise old lama. But when Kim's father's old regimental chaplain runs into the lama and his young chela on their travels, a big change threatens to disrupt the friends' plans to find enlightenment and happiness on their shared quest.

Widely considered to be Rudyard Kipling's masterpiece, Kim combines sweeping adventure with a brilliant coming-of-age story. Part children's tale, part spy thriller, part examination of the twilight of the Victorian empire, Kim is a classic page-turner.
