Here are some newspaper reviews:

RUDYARD KIPLING, writing at the height of the British Empire about the White Man's Burden, is best known for his stories about India like 'Kim' and The Jungle Book'.  But Kipling, who was born in Sussex, also produced many engaging short stories and "Picking Up Gold and Silver' (Macmillan, £12.95) is a selection of 12 of these stories chosen by M M Kaye.
M M Kaye herself brought up in India, and author of 'The Far Pavilions', has chosen a variety of tales about people, animals and ghosts, ten of which are set in the sub-continent.
Among the characters featured are Mowgli, the wolf-boy from 'The Jungle Book', now grown into a man, and a British engineer building a bridge across the Ganges in the wake of a flash flood.  One of the most interesting stories is 'The Return of Imray', which delves into the relationship between master and servant.
Enjoying these stories rather than merely reading them really is like picking up gold and silver. THE NEWS, PORTSMOUTH, 11 NOV 1989 by Mark Morton

Rudyard Kipling, so long pre-eminent in the short story field, makes a come-back in this prime selection of twelve stories by M M Kaye, a lifelong fan.  It must have been difficult to choose from the treasury of 21 books, but she has done a magnificent job.  If a birthday of a Kipling fan is imminent, this is the ideal present.  Eastern Daily Press, 9 Nov 1989 by Ralph Potter

M M Kaye's selection of Kipling short stories in 'Picking Up Gold and Silver' will appeal to devotees.
