Publisher's Summary

This collection brings together 17 of Kipling's early stories, written between 1885 and 1888, when Kipling was working as a journalist in India. "The Man Who Would Be King" is the story of two British vagabonds who set off to establish a small kingdom among primitive tribesmen in Afghanistan. Only one of the men returns, and his condition is so bad that the newspaperman-narrator barely recognizes him. Other stories include: "The Phantom Rickshaw", "Baa Baa, Black Sheep", "At the Pit's Mouth", "A Wayside Comedy", "Gemini", "The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes", "At 22", and "With the Main Guard".
