27 short tales by Rudyard Kipling, all revolving around South or Southeast Asia in some way, although some are set in other parts of the world.

About the book (from the Preface):

These tales have been collected from all places, and all sorts of people, from priests in the Chubara, from Ala Yar the carver, Jiwun Singh the carpenter, nameless men on steamers and trains round the world, women spinning outside their cottages in the twilight, officers and gentlemen now dead and buried, and a few, but these are the very best, my father gave me.
