Two free-spirited English ex-soldiers seek adventure and fortune only to find Lady Luck lending them a most generous hand. In an amazing series of events (peppered with lies and deceit), the two become kings of Kafiristan. When one of the pair begins to actually believe the lies, all falls apart and their true identities exposed leading to disaster. Rudyard Kipling's "The Man Who Would Be King" is a classic tale of greed, blind ambition, honor lost, imperialism and ... Freemasonry. Symbolic hints and clues fill the book and when read with a discerning eye, it is a clear example of how good can turn to evil when we stray from the path. Photographic Reproduction of the 1899 Edition. Part of the Cornerstone Classic Reproduction Series.
