In American Notes, Rudyard Kipling, the Nobel Prize-winning author of the Jungle Book, visits the USA. As the travel-diary of an Anglo-Indian Imperialist visiting the USA, these American Notes offer an interesting view of America in the 1880s.
Kipling affects a wide-eyed innocence, and expresses astonishment at features of American life that differ from his own, not least the freedom (and attraction) of American women.
However, he scorns the political machines that made a mockery of American democracy.
Richly written, you will definitely enjoy the travelogue of Rudyard Kipling and get a glimpse of old America.
