A Roving Commission
A Roving Commission: or Through the Black Insurrection of Hayti
By: G. A. Henty (1900)
This is one of the most brilliant of Mr. Henty's books. A story of the sea, with all its life and action, it is also full of thrilling adventures on land. So it holds the keenest interest until the end. The scene is a new one to Mr. Henty' s readers, being laid at the time of the Great Revolt of the Blacks, by which Hayti became independent. Toussaint L'Overture appears, and an admirable picture is given of him and of his power.
