Ithese stories didn't interest me. ( )

This is definitely not Disney's Jungle Book. While certainly not a favorite it doesn't deserve a pan; but I cannot see fit to recommend it either. I'm also very glad it wasn't any longer. Hard to believe this was written for children. ( )

An interesting collection of short stories and poetry all centered on the central theme of animals and man in British-controlled India

Further, the whole book has a semi-biblical undertone; it's hard to explain, but you'll see it if you read it. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication

For Abigail
First words
Now Rann the Kite brings home the night
    That Mang the Bat sets free –
The herds are shut in byre and hut
    For loosed till dawn are we.
This is the hour of pride and power,
    Talon and tush and claw.
Oh, hear the call! – Good hunting all
    That keep the Jungle Law!
