Summary
A vivid, beguiling coming of age story chronicling the quest of an adolescent boy and an old ascetic priest, Kim is Kipling's masterpiece. Kim was born and raised in India and plays with the slum children on the streets, but he is white, a sahib, and wants to play the Great Game of Imperialism, while his companion, a priest, seeks redemption from the Wheel of Life. Kim celebrates their friendship and their journeys in a beautiful, exotic but often hostile environment.
