"Just as I was getting strong enough to walk, and was beginning to think of making my escape, a band of five or six fellows, armed to the teeth, came in, and made signs that I was to go with them. It was evidently an arranged thing, the girls only were surprised, but they were at once turned out, and as we started I could see two crouching figures in the shade with their cloths over their heads. I had a native garment thrown over my shoulders, and in five minutes after the arrival of the fellows found myself on my way. It took us some six hours before we reached our destination, which was one of those natural rock citadels.
This volume of short stories contains five of G.A. Henty's classic tales: "Bears snd Dacoits," "The Paternosters," "A Pipe of Mystery," "White-Faced Dick," and "A Brush with the Chinese."
