Kim tells the story of Kimball O'Hara (Kim) who is the orphaned son of a soldier in an Irish regiment stationed in India during the British Raj. Kim's early life varies from being a vagabond on the streets of Lahore to his adoption by his father's old regiment. In KIM, Rudyard Kipling captures the frenetic bustle of bazaars of the sub-continent with its many races of people. Through Kim's recruitment into the British Secret Service he takes the reader into the intricacies of the "Great Game" of espionage played out with the Russians against the backdrop of the High Himalayas and amongst the tribesmen of the North West frontier.
