"The Tiger Of Mysore" Takes place in India during The Third Anglo-Mysore War of 1789-1792 And, as is the case of most Of Henty's books, focuses on the adventures of a teenage boy during those events. In this book, Dick Holland and his Mother set out to discover the fate of Dick's Father, a ship's Captain who was shipwrecked and taken prisoner by Tipu sultan (Tippoo Sahib), AKA The Tiger of Mysore.
I found this book to be very exciting and educational and is probably the best historical fiction I've ever read. I recommend it to any teenager looking for a good, wholesome book to read. Here are the pros and cons for this E-book:
Affordable (especially for an E-book!)
If you read this book, I also recommend "At the point of the bayonet"
both stories happening at similar times, and tying together some events.
Thank you for reading my review! I hope you found it helpful and will read this great book.
