About the Author
Born in Bombay, India, but raised in England from the age of five, Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) is today best known as the author of such classics of literature as The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1902) and Just So Stories (1902). He returned to India in 1882 to become a journalist and local newspaper editor and began writing supernatural stories set in his native continent. Kipling was the first British writer to be award the Nobel Prize for Literature, in 1907.

I used to despise Kipling for his paternalism, chauvanism; Empire, Imperialism, War et al & what what I considered then to be colonial racism.
But sd I've grown older,hopefully wiser and developed maturity through life I see that his perspective gives genuine life skills, acceptance of others both individually and different cultural and ethnic groups while having a sense of pride honour & dignity in yourself and who you are!
Buyers should note that it ONLY contains this poem, which was exactly what we were after, but some might assume for the price that it is a compendium.
