I guess no one has seen this edition. It is pretty old and gives absolutely no information about itself. It begins with 103 pages of poetry, moving on to 'The Phantom Rickshaw and Other Stories, Volume III' (The Phantom 'Rickshaw, My Own True Ghost Story, The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes, The Man Who Would Be King and "The Finest Story in the World").

I read the Just So Stories, from within this book, aloud to my student. The descriptive language, alliteration, and style make these stories a perfect example of a Pour quoi myth that teaches a lesson. Emulating the style of Kipling, my 6th students write their own pour quio myths in blank books and share them with our adjoining primary school.

Goodness, what a waste. Collection of imperialist narratives and soldierly nostalgias. The latter are presented in the form of ditties and ballads, annoyingly precise in end rhymes. I realize that many people consider his shorts to be Quality, but the subject matter kills it for me.

Recommends it for: Anyone.
Shelves: own
Mostly regimental in nature, the British Army tales in Imperial India show the "white man's burden." Quite arrogantly phrased but wonderfully written tales of barracks life and the tribulations of occupation in a dusty backwater.

I thought I loved Kipling but this was just too much and went on forever so I quit. But now that I've read other reviews I think I'll search through the book and find his Just So stories
