This short Biography of Rudyard Kipling covers the time just before and the 4 years he lived with his family just outside Brattleboro Vermont. It was at once a peaceful and productive time for him as it was there that he wrote the Jungle Book among others and a trying time as his family relationship with his brother-in-law became more contentious as time went on, leading to charges and a court case. I am not much of a reader of Biographies but I found this one to easy and interesting. And I had no idea the he had actually lived in the states muck less just a little distance from where ling in New Hampshire. If you can find it, give it a try.
