Imagine living in a nation where killing a sacred cat is a capital offense. Thutmose III’s Egypt, in Moses’ day, was such a region.

The priest Ameres and his family live in this land. Life is turned upside down when the son, Chebron, accidentally kills the sacred cat of Bubastes. This incident leads to secrecy, grief, and flight as one harrowing adventure follows another. Their best hope of a safe haven for youthful Chebron and his sister is the land of the Rebu, itself a conquered nation under Egyptian rule. To reach that distant land, they must flee through closely guarded Egyptian exits. Then they must embark on a challenging journey through unfamiliar lands populated by unfamiliar people and conquer numerous geographical hindrances.

G. A. Henty has produced a story which will give young readers an unsurpassed insight into the customs of one of the greatest of ancient peoples in the classic The Cat of Bubastes.
