Overview

Although this book was written as part of the Boy's Own Favorite Library, it makes great reading for adults as well......
Falsely accused of the murder of a relation in Devonshire, Ronald Mervyn immigrates to South Africa and participates in a Kaffir war. He rescues a family from death in Africa, who subsequently return to England and work to establish his innocence.
"There was nothing about Carne's Hold that would have suggested to the mind of the passing stranger that a curse lay upon it. Houses to which an evil history is attached lie almost uniformly in low and damp situations. They are embedded in trees; their appearance is gloomy and melancholy; the vegetation grows rank around them, the drive is overgrown with weeds and mosses, and lichens cling to the walls."
