    " A collection of interwoven short stories taking place in Simla, India during the British Raj. I appreciate Kipling's economical prose and this book showcases some of his early and darker work. "

    " These are short stories of British India, mainly regiment stories. Each story starts with a short poem or a saying from native Indian sources. There are very few stories that refer to Indian characters, but almost all of such stories have a tragedy written in them. Some characters appear in more than one story. Kipling writes in a beautiful language, simple stories from the Shimla hills. "
