An older Mowgli roams the jungle with his old animal friends and explores the ways of his people, a prime minister becomes a wandering holy man, scavengers tell their story and we leave India for the high, high north of Canada.
"The Second Jungle Book" is a continuation of Rudyard Kipling's "Jungle Book". First published in 1895, it contains five stories about Mowgli and three independent stories, all except one in India, most of which were written by Kipling during his stay in Vermont. Here Kipling again shows his love for the Indian subcontinent and its people and his understanding of their belief in these stories. All stories were published in magazines as early as 1894-5, often under different titles. The 1994 film "The Jungle Book" used them as a source.
The size of the eBook corresponds to about 250 printed pages, and it is provided with the original illustrations by John Lockwood Kipling (1837-1911).
