American Notes is a book by English writer Rudyard Kipling, first published in 1891. It is a collection of opinions and anecdotes made by Kipling as he travelled across the United States and Canada in 1889. He finds himself not altogether impressed with the U.S.A - apart from perhaps the American women, and fly-fishing. Other areas that he writes about (generally unflatteringly) are the American Army, American attitudes to race, and to money, Chicago slaughterhouses, and stockyards.

This book has 72 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1891.
