Publisher's Summary

Peachy Carnahan and Daniel Dravot set off into the wild northern passes of India to build not a fortune, but an empire. They find a likely spot in Kafiristan, where Dravot manages to set himself up, not only as king, but as a god, and Peachy takes charge of the army. But ruling isn't always as easy as it looks. This program also includes the short stories "The Drums of the Fore and Aft" and "Mary Postgate," originally published in 1899.
