    I greatly enjoyed this 1887 novel which included a table of contents and original black and white illustrations by WB Wollen This is a Kobo copy eBook release December 2009 ISBN 1990001233269 General Books LLC 2009 236 pages General Books publication date 2009 Original publication date 1887 Original Publisher Blackie Subjects Australia Fiction Historical Juvenile Fiction Action It appears to have been scanned from the original Univ of Toronto Library copyUpon reaching the end of the story I discovered that indeed it was a true story I would assume it should be referenced as 'based on fact' because I'm sure many of the detailsuotations etc would not have been known so precisely I chose to read this book because it was about Australia my father's homeland It featured a boy in England who ended up in Australia in the early days when both Aborigines and bush rangers former convicts were causing havoc on the new white settlers in New South Wales near Sydney My family were early settlers and suatters in NSW and this book served it's intended purpose it gave me a fascinating vivid and exciting picture of what my ancestors may have contended with living in this area in the mid late 1800s I had read some family accounts of similar situations but this book told the story from all sides with much detailIf true it also gives an amazing picture of the skills of one of the 'blacks' as the author referred to the abos particularly of the one named Jim who was the main character's 'servant' On the negative side because I was looking forward to the storyline being in Australia I thought the first portion of the book which took place in England was rather long It was however very interesting and not wanting to give a spoiler I will only say that the author gave uite a descriptive account of life in that place and eraI note there may be newer re edited versions of this story and I would recommend seeking one of them rather than this original seemingly unedited version with a dark red cover of a man on horseback I took a photo of it as it was not listed here There are many disconcerting formatting errors and typos ie The main character's name changes back and forth regularly due to the first letter of his name being changed

    5 stars 510 hearts This is one of my top five favourite Henty books Ships Police officers One of my favourite Main Characters Bushrangers Desperate excitement Very clean a few mentions of drinkingvarious alcohol disparagement towards blacks a mention of carrying off women I love it It’s so exciting even when you’ve read it several times And I simply love Reuben I just love it so muchA Favourite uote “‘There's a pleasure in helping a lad who seems in any way teachable’”A Favourite Humorous uote “‘Now Captain Whitney you must come into your room and let me bandage up your shoulder properly I hadn't half time to do it before”“‘But you won't want me to lie in bed or any nonsense of that sort?” Reuben asked “‘I would if I thought you would obey my orders; but as I see no chance of that I shall not trouble to give them’”

    This book is so racist Granted the Victorian language makes it look bad but still this book has not caused my view of Henty Togo up Pick one of his battle books like For The Temple instead
