Descrizione

This can be thought of as an early Bill Bryson, but with sharper penetration. Kipling at his best is a great writer and although this is a youthful example of his work it clearly shows immense potential. He cut his teeth on Indian (as in India not native Americans) journalism and he compares many aspects of American life to the very different culture he was born into. At times funny, and he pulls no punches at a society that seems to have very different values from those of the people under the Raj. 

Always highly observant and with a brilliant ability to get to the heart of any character he meets on the road. It is great to read a young man's observations that are not coloured by notions of modern-day political correctness. He may have a biassed view because of his youth, but he tells it as it seemed to him then. Surely a journalist's duty. A short, fun read. 

An interesting account of Kipling's travels in the USA and his reflections on what he found in 19th century America.
