Jaunais Rendolfs ir sava tēva plantācijas mantinieks. Puika aug savā vaļā, dienas pavadot medībās un apstaigājot plantācijas teritoriju. Rendolfi Floridā skaitās diezgan cienījami plantatori. Pret vergiem viņi izturas labi, arī ar idiāņiem nenaidojas. Taču pienāks brīdis, kad Lielais tēvs nolemj seminolu ciltij, pārkāpjot visus iepriekšējos līgumus, atņemt viņu zemi un indiāņu vietā nometināt baltos cilvēkus. Lieki piebilst, ka visi apkārtnes plantatori ir par. Rendolfs un viņa bērnības draugs i ...more

Видях пред себе си жена на средна възраст — между тридесет и четиридесет години, едра жена, която някога е била красива и с която са постъпили зле. Тя представляваше развалина, беше запазила следи от предишната си прелест, подобно на статуята на гръцка богиня, потрошена от вандалски ръце, дори отломките от която притежават несравнимо изящество.
Тя още не бе загубила чара си. Има хора, които се възхищават от такава зряла хубост — за тях тя би имала необикновена прелест. Времето беше пощадило едрит

I was reading an 1876 edition of Charles Dickens and I noticed other books were advertised in the back. As might be expected, Jane Austin and other heavyweights were there, but so were books by "Captain Mayne Reid". I figured if he was good enough to keep literary company with Dickens and Austin, he might be worth a read today. Being from Florida, I decided to start with this book.

Having read the book, I first have to report that Captain Reid is not a Dickens nor an Austin. However this book, wr

"Captain" Reid wrote many adventure novels akin to those written by Frederick Marryat and Robert Louis Stevenson. He was a great admirer of Lord Byron. These novels contain action that takes place primarily in untamed settings: the American West, Mexico, South Africa, the Himalayas, and Jamaica.
