Kipling creates a harmonious picture of India that unites the secular and the spiritual, the life of action and that of contemplation. It is the story of the orphaned son of an Irish soldier, Kimball O'Hara, who spends his childhood as a vagabond, traveling through India with an old Tibetan lama, enthralled by the "roaring whirl" of the country's colorful landscape and by the diversity of its people.More
Two great foreign empires wage a hot and cold war for supremacy and wealth in the troubled region stretching from Persia to India to the mountains of Tibet. Along the way, a Buddhist lama seeks enlightenment and enlists the help of a poor, white soldier’s child. This is not today’s edition of The New York Times, this is Rudyard Kipling’s probable masterpiece, 1901’s Kim.
The legendary Walter Covell performs Kipling’s elegant prose with his natural, swarthy East Coast delivery, and listeners are treated to an epic as palatable to children as it is fascinating to adults. Using "The Great Game" between Russia and the British Empire as its political backdrop, Kim is also a study in love, discipleship, and landscape.
