It must be something like 40 years or more since I read it last - and it was still thrilling.
I came across this book which purports to research the background to the places and characters of Kim - starting with the great cannon "Zam Zammah". It is mostly an account of the author's journey, following the path taken by Kin and his lama as they travel along the Great Trunk Road in search of mythical river (and secretly participate in the Great Game.
There are lots of interesting anecdotes, and occasional discoveries - and much guesswork.
I really enjoyed the book, although it didn't discover as much as I had hoped.
A good book to have if you are a Kim fan, but definitely not the only one you need.
