A novel by the English novelist, Henry Kingsley, who was the brother of the better known Charles Kingsley. After emigrating to Australia, Henry Kingsley became involved in golddigging, and later joined the mounted police. On his return to the United Kingdom in 1858 he devoted himself to literature, and wrote several well-regarded novels, including The Recollections of Geoffrey Hamlyn (1859), set in Colebrooke, Devon, and Australia.
The others all went home and grew warlike, arming them- selves against the threatened danger; but still weeks, nay months, rolled on, and winter was turning into spring, and yet the country side remained so profoundly tranquil that every one began to believe that the con- victs must after all have been drowned, and that the boat found by sagacious Blockstrop had been capsized and thrown bottom upwards.
