Contents (all songs omitted) (*=Mowgli stories): How Fear Came*; The Miracle of Purun Bhagat; Letting in the Jungle*; The Undertakers; The King's Ankus*; Quiquern; Red Dog*; The Spring Running*

Wikipedia: Note: the first edition of The Second Jungle Book inadvertently omits the final 500 words of this story, in which Mowgli returns the treasure to its hiding-place to prevent further killings. Although the error was corrected in later printings, it was picked up by some later editions.

Since I have not read the first Jungle Book, the Mowgli stories were a bit hard to follow at times but I did enjoy the non-Jungle stories more than I expected. I was expecting to find the usual Kipling problems of "White Man's Burden" perspective but there was pleasantly little of it.

Il voto riguarda le sole "Storie di Mowgli", che ne giustificano la lettura. La maggior parte degli altri racconti di contorno sono piuttosto noiosi e non sempre originali; talvolta stonano un po' con l'ambientazione. ( )

I was completely captivated by these stories. This is a book I could not put down. ( )

Das Gesetz des Dschungels - es ist bei weitem das älteste Gesetz der Welt - enthält Vorkehrungen für nahezu alles was dem Dschungel-Volk zustoßen mag, so daß sein Regelwerk nun so volkommen ist, wie Zeit und Gewohnheit es nun machen können.
