Kim is Rudyard Kipling's great, epic adventure classic, and a magnificent evocation of India at the time of the Raj. Orphan 'sahib' and bazaar-boy, Kim lives on his wits. His chameleon's talent for disguise draws him into the Great Game - British Intelligence in India - and on a mission to thwart foreign agents on the North-West Frontier. Kim's travels coincide with the quest of his friend, the Tibetan lama, who is seeking redemption form the Wheel of Life. They are the heroes of an adventure crammed with incident and humour, alive with the hustle, bustle, life and opulence of India's exotic landscape, overlaid by the uneasy presence of the British Raj.
