The famous adventures of Mowgli the man-cub and his extraordinary animal friends.

Here are the famous stories of how Mowgli came to the wolf pack, learned the law of the jungle from Baloo the bear, Bagheera the black panther, and Kaa the python, and killed the evil tiger Shere Khan. And here too are Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, the snake-fighting mongoose, Little Toomai, who sees the elephants' secret dance, Kotick the white seal, and the varied characters in the horse lines of an army camp.

This does not include the sequel, commonly called "Part 2", but it can be downloaded from Project Gutenberg here.
