The tale of Terrance O'Connor, son of a senior captain, who joined Sir Aurther Wellesley's expedition to Portugal. A young man notorious for his mischievous pranks, Terrance's quick witted suggestion saves the outgoing transport from attack by French privateers, and he is selected as an aides-de-camp to the General. A sequel to With Moore at Corunna.
A thrilling tale of adventure, told at high pressure. Nothing is impossible to the daring and intrepid American detective, who starts for the wilds of Central Africa to track the murderer of Lord Drelincourt's wife and child. Mountains are blown up, torrents are turned from their courses, inaccessible heights are scaled with lightning speed, desperate foes are vanquished, and the most stupendous feats are successfully carried out amid the veriest hairsbredth escapes. It is a story to thoroughly delight a boy's heart. (Sequel to Into the Unknown.)
