|About the Book|
I was presented with the 1937 edition of Tales of India as a gift when I visited Sterling Publishing in October of 2010. Im excited to finally get started reading it. The pages are old and crack easily so Ill have to be careful.It took me forever to get through this book partly because I was being extra careful with the pages but mostly because it took me a long time to figure out the dialogue with the accents written in. Not exactly what I expected. I thought that it would be more about India but mostly it was about British soldiers in India. I had to figure out what some of the words meant since Im not British, a soldier, Indian, or lived 100 years ago. Still, its a fascinating glimpse into a different time and now I know the real story of Gunga Din.
