An orphan vagabond during the British Raj in India
Kim is the orphaned son of a soldier in the Irish regiment stationed in India during the British Raj and a poor Irish woman. His early life is surviving on the streets as a native child. He searches for enlightenment with a lama, then is forced to adopt his British white heritage. The book was first published serially in McClure's Magazine as well as in Cassell's Magazine before being published as a single work.
