The Cat of Bubastes (extra large print)

ByG. A. Henty

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Around the year 1450 B.C., the Rebu people are attacked by the Egyptians. They fight desperately, but cannot withstand the greater strength of the Egyptian chariots and siege tactics. Amuba, a Rebu prince, witnesses his father fall in battle, and his people overthrown. He is made a slave, and given as a personal servant to Chebron, the son of an Egyptian priest. Chebron treats Amuba more as a companion than a servant, and the two young men become friends. When Chebron accidentally kills Faucis, a sacred cat, Amuba and Chebron must hide to escape the wrath of the Egyptian people. There are further adventures, including a providential meeting with an Egyptian prince named Moses. (6"x9" extra large print [17 point] hardcover, with all illustrations from the original, and footnotes defining obscure or uncommon words)
