The sacred cat of Bubastes has accidentally been slain; now young Chebron must pay for the offense with his own life, as this is the law of the Pagans in Egypt, 1250 BC. Chebron, the son of a high Egyptian priest, flees for his life taking his sister Mysa, one of the household slaves, Amuba, and several companions with him. They escape through closely guarded Egyptian exits only to find themselves in unfamiliar and dangerous lands inhabited by a very different culture of people. Along the way, the roving band of refugees encounters and befriends a Hebrew girl, who exposes them to very strange ideas including the worship of one true God.

This arduous journey through time, customs and religion provides an adventurous and accurate insight into the ancient people of Egyptian history. Download and start listening now!

    " Pretty heavy handed, and more religiously Christian than I was expecting, but an excellent look at life in Ancient Egypt. We listened to the free Librivox recording, which had pretty dry narration, but the story got more exciting toward the end, so that none of us minded that the narrator sounded like he was reading an algebra textbook. "

    " I have forgotten how much I enjoyed reading GA Henry. Wholesome charaters, good plots (although somewhat predictable) and interesting,good insights to history from a 19th century author. He is titled as the boys historian, I guess I am still a boy at heart. "

    " a ripping yarn; can't believe I've never read a Henty before; thank you, Dover Books "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ranita Terroe | 1/16/2014

    " Filled with thrilling events! However, I find this book a bit boring due to its bountiful details. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alcyone | 1/12/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K. | 11/30/2013

    " This was great for history lovers, not for littles though, too much description of ancient customs, etc for my 6 yr girl. 9 yr boy loved it. "

    " Very Good. A well written story depicting what life in Ancient Egypt may have been like. The plot was interesting and it was very informative. Overall it was well worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luke | 8/25/2013

    " This was a pretty good historical fiction book, but not incredible. I liked the detail and the integration of historical characters, but it was hard knowing how much was true in the real world and how much the author made up. Good book, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elise Harkey | 11/19/2012

    " Interesting to read Henty's view of paganism vs. monotheism. Some of the characters in this book believed that all the idols were representing the different attributes of the one God. That's a good start, but still a view that should be carefully evaluated. "
