Micah Clarke

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Book Overview: 

This book tells the story of Micah Clarke's adventures. As a boy he follows his rather romantic notions of what it means to be a soldier and how to find adventure. But over the course of his career, adventure finds him, and it is not always quite as fun as Micah had pictured it to be - especially as he finds himself involved in a rebellion.

The weary horses responded bravely to the call, and struggled onwards over the broken ground for a considerable time. At last we were thinking of pulling up in good earnest, and of congratulating ourselves upon having tired out our pursuers, when of a sudden the bell-like baying broke upon our ears far louder than it had been before—so loud, indeed, that it was evident that the dogs were close upon our heels.

'The accursed hounds!' cried Saxon, putting spurs to his horse and shooting ahead of us; 'I feared as much. They have freed them from the leash. There is no escape from the devils, but. . . Read More

A delightful tale by Conan Doyle that highlights a long-forgotten chapter of British history, Lord Monmouth's unsuccessful rising against James II. As anyone familiar with the Holmes canon can understand, the story-telling more than makes up for the someone stilted dialogue. Surprisingly entertainin

Fascinating historical fiction that brings you sympathetically into the Monmouth Rebellion. Doyle, better know for Sherlock Holmes, treats the Puritans kindly, which is rare enough. As an American (a country founded by the ancestors of those earlier rebels) this was an enjoyable introduction to the

A really good adventure story. An unusual and interesting story about a time not often told. Enjoyable.

Poor job of making characters that could really have been historical people. Try The White Company instead.

Doyle was born in the month of May so I chose him as my Literary Birthday author, think

I thought I loved Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes books but I find his stories of battles and the lives of those who fought them set in the 17th and 18th centuries of England absolutely fascinating. His attention to detail and the research required are amazing. Doyle must have loved this wo

This is the story of a young man who joins in an attempt to depose king James II of England with his half brother the Duke of Monmouth. Known as the Monmouth rebellion, it was essentially a religious struggle more than political as James was trying to turn England into a Roman Catholic nation and th

Micah Clarke, first published in 1889, is a swashbuckling adventure set against a background of the Monmouth rebellion of 1685, culminating in the Battle of Sedgemoor. The story is told through the first person recollections of Micah Clarke, a Puritan. The swashbuckling style means that many larger
