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. "
