About the Author:

Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay in 1865. During his time at the United Services College, he began to write poetry, privately publishing Schoolboy Lyrics in 1881. The following year he started work as a journalist in India, and while there produced a body of work, stories, sketches, and poems including Mandalay, Gunga Din, and Danny Deeverwhich made him an instant literary celebrity when he returned to England in 1889. While living in Vermont with his wife, an American, Kipling wrote The Jungle Books, Just So Stories, and Kimwhich became widely regarded as his greatest long work, putting him high among the chronicles of British expansion. Kipling returned to England in 1902, but he continued to travel widely and write, though he never enjoyed the literary esteem of his early years. In 1907, he became the first British writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize. He died in 1936

From AudioFile:

Jornado is a journey, for revenge. With clarity and feeling, Gene Engene reads the story of Clint Evans's search for his wife's murderer. His accents, especially that of Mexican Phillipe, are neither overdone nor too emphatic. The characters are differentiated, and dramatization adds individuality to each one. The story highlights the way that seeking revenge changes people. A traditional story of the Old West well told. S.C.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
