Summary
Originally published in 1888, "The Cat of Bubastes" is one of G. A. Henty's most popular historical novels which takes place in ancient Egypt on or around 1250 BC. When the Rebu nation is conquered by the Egyptians and their king is killed, the young prince Amuba is carried away as a captive to Egypt, along with his faithful charioteer, Jethro. In the city of Thebes, Amuba becomes the servant and companion to Chebron, the son of Ameres, high priest of Osiris. Amuba and Jethro begin to uncover evidence of a murderous conspiracy within the ranks of the priesthood, however before they can prevent it they find that they must flee the city when they accidentally kill the successor to the Cat of Bubastes, one of the most sacred animals in all of Egypt. A captivating tale of adventure set during the height of the Egyptian empire, "The Cat of Bubastes" will entertain and delight fans of the historical fiction genre. This edition includes all of the original illustrations by John Reinhard Weguelin and a biographical afterword
