The Second Jungle Book

by Rudyard Kipling
Release date: 1895
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, short stories

Here are the stories and songs of Kipling's Second Jungle Book: tales of Mowgli and his Seeonee Wolf-Pack and, of course, Akela the wolf; of Bagheera, the panther; Kaa, the Rock Python; Baloo, the Bear; and so many others. They are the tales of Mowgli, the lost boy raised by wolves in the jungles of India, brought up on a diet of Jungle Law, loyalty, and fresh meat from the kill, and they have captivated children and adults alike for generations. There is no better place to learn the life of the wolf pack and the natural order – the natural justice – of life in the jungle. And who could ever forget Mowgli's enemy, Shere Khan, the bragadocious Bengal tiger? To say nothing of Rikki-tikki-tavi, the mongoose? This second volume presents the further adventures of Mowgli, including the tale of his biological parents, cast out by their village for their connection to a demon child...
