This volume presents Richard Jeffries' 1882 novel, "e;Bevis"e;. It is comprised of three interlinked stories. The first of these witnesses Bevis and his friend discover and explore the 'New Sea' and its surroundings. The following story sees two gangs of boys re-enact the Battle of Pharsalia with Bevis and Caesar. The final part of the text concerns itself with the various adventures that Bevis and Mark have when they sail to a little island in the middle of a lake - that they name ''New Formosa''. These heart-warming stories are evocative of a well-spent childhood, and are full of exuberance, ingenuity, imagination and inventiveness. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
