Narrator Jack de Golia thoroughly inhabits 24-year-old Rudyard Kipling. The year is 1889, and the British journalist/correspondent is traveling around the western U.S. and Canada. Kipling's wry sense of humor overlays his observations of life and customs in San Francisco, Portland, and Vancouver. He also visits Yellowstone National Park and "Old Faithful," the Great Salt Lake, the Grand Canyon, and the Rocky Mountains. De Golia portrays the people Kipling encounters, including broad-toned Boston Brahmins, flat-accented Californians, naïve debutantes, and hardened railroaders. Kipling's keen journalist's eye captures habits, quirks, and eccentricities, along with racist and imperialist attitudes of the day. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
