Another “adventure classic” writer. We owe him the “jungle Book” stories, the fantastic “Kim”. The classic adventure movie “Gunga Din” is based in one of his poems. “Gunga Din” is considered by many the precursor of the serialized adventure TV programs and of movies as famous as the “Indiana Jones” series.

Don't know about Wilbur+Kipling but "If " is a wonderful poem.
And Kipling wrote:

I keep six honest serving men.
They taught me all I knew.
Their names are what and why and when,
And how and where and who.
Readers are novel people.
