I want to go Home! I want to go back to India! I am miserable. The steamship Nawab at this time of the year ought to have been empty, instead of which we have one hundred first-class passengers and sixty-six second. All the pretty girls are in the latter class. -from No. VI Though he achieved lasting fame with his childrens tale The Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling left us with a vast array of writing that has fallen into sad-and unwarranted-obscurity. This collection of notes and essays on his world travels reveals a man bursting with self-deprecating wit, keen observational powers, and an intelligent awareness of his own cultural biases and prejudices.

First published in 1899, this volume serves as a delightful reminder of Kiplings genius, and includes: . an account of attending the theater in Japan and visiting Shinto shrines . an exploration of Indias city of elephants and a meeting with the naughty children of Iquique . notes on a journey to San Francisco and the taking of tea with the natives there . an explanation of how to manufacture ethnological theories at railroad speed . and much more.
