Kimball O'Hara was a child living on the streets of India in the early 1900s. That was until he befriended a Buddhist lama and became his disciple.

The story follows our cheeky, fun-loving hero as he journeys across northern India – from Lahore to the vast beauty of the Himalayan mountains – in the company of

the lama. The two of them have different goals, but the physical paths they follow are very similar.

As we follow Kim, we see him transform from a simple vagabond to a sharp operative in the dangerous world of politics, betrayal, and death. All the excitement of Kim's

adventures takes place in the backdrop of a beautiful country full of amazing sights, incredible sounds, and an extremely rich culture.

In what is considered by many to be Kipling's finest work, he draws on his own experiences of living in India to tell an unforgettable and action-packed story within a vivid and accurate setting.
