Kipling and the Sea Voyages and Discoveries

Kipling wrote copiously about his own voyages – to India, across the Pacific and Atlantic, down to South Africa and Australia – and about the voyages of others. Sailors were particular heroes of his, as adventurers who braved every kind of element and danger to reach distant lands, as skilled engineers and navigators in the Merchant Service, or as trained men in the Royal Navy, safeguarding the Empire.
