Thanks to the care with which the Egyptians depicted upon the walls of their sepulchers the minutest doings of their daily life, to the dryness of the climate which has preserved these records uninjured for so many thousand years, and to the indefatigable labor of modern investigators, we know far more of the manners and customs of the Egyptians, of their methods of work, their sports and amusements, their public festivals, and domestic life, than we do of those of peoples comparatively modern. My object in the present story has been to give you as lively a picture as possible of that life, drawn from the bulky pages of Sir J. Gardner Wilkinson and other writers on the same subject. I have laid the scene in the time of Thotmes III., one of the greatest of the Egyptian monarchs, being surpassed only in glory and the extent of his conquests by Rameses the Great. It is certain that Thotmes carried the arms of Egypt to the shores of the Caspian, and a people named the Rebu, with fair hair and blue eyes, were among those depicted in the Egyptian sculptures as being conquered and made tributary. It is open to discussion whether the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt took place in the reign of Thotmes or many years subsequently, some authors assigning it to the time of Rameses. Without attempting to enter into this much-discussed question, I have assumed that the Israelites were still in Egypt at the time of Thotmes, and by introducing Moses just at the time he began to take up the cause of the people to whom he belonged, I leave it to be inferred that the Exodus took place some forty years later. I wish you to understand, however, that you are not to accept this date as being absolutely correct. Opinions differ widely upon it; and as no allusion whatever has been discovered either to the Exodus or to any of the events which preceded it among the records of Egypt, there is nothing to fix the date as occurring during the reign of any one among the long line of Egyptian kings. The term Pharaoh used in the Bible throws no light upon the subject, as Pharaoh simply means king, and the name of no monarch bearing that appellation is to be found on the Egyptian monuments. I have in no way exaggerated the consequences arising from the slaying of the sacred cat, as the accidental killing of any cat whatever was an offense punished by death throughout the history of Egypt down to the time of the Roman connection with that country.

An Amazon Review :This book was exciting from the very beginning until the very end. I thought it was one of the best books I've ever read. It is about a Rebu Prince who lost his kingdom, his father, his family, and his home to the Egyptians in battle and was taken captive to Egypt. There, he was made a slave with his friend, Jethro. But he was not sad there for he was chosen by the high priest of the temple of the god, Osiris. Amuba, the Prince, made a friend at the priest's house, called Chebron. The main part was when they were outside trying to shoot a hawk who was killing all the water fowl. They both fired their bow and arrows. Since the prince had been in a battle, he hit the hawk but Chebron, who had never been in a battle before, missed and killed the sacred cat. In Egypt, if you kill a cat, you will be killed. From that point on in the story, things get exciting. People die, battles happen, the Prince and his comrades flee. In the end, Chebron is save because of the heroics of his friends. I rate this book a 5 star. If you want any kind of book just read this one!!

G. A. Henty's classic novel of adventure in Ancient Egypt aimed at the younger audience is presented here. The entire book takes place at the height of the Egyptian civilisation, in around 1250 BC. We follow Amuba, a young man whose father is dramatically killed in battle. Taken prisoner by the opposing force, Amuba is carried back to the Egyptian kingdom alongside his friend and charioteer Jethro. When the pair arrive, they are fortunate enough to be assigned as servants to Amuba, a highly ranked priest. However all is not as is would seem within the priestly household, and it is up to Amuba and Jethro to investigate a conspiracy which has the potential to upset the delicate balance of power in Egypt. The author G. A. Henty was a British war correspondent, and had travelled through North Africa during his career, as well as much of Europe. It was these tours of foreign lands which helped spur his secondary profession of author: throughout his life he penned dozens of historical fiction novels, which would typically involve youngsters caught up in times of upheaval or adversity.

The sacred cat of Bubastes has accidentally been slain; now young Chebron must pay for the offence 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.
