Micah Clarke Synopsis

Micah Clarke is a historical adventure novel set during the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685 in England. Micah Clarke begins as a boy seeking adventure in a rather romantic and naive way, and he falls under the influence of an older and vastly experienced, world-weary soldier of fortune, and becomes a grown-up after numerous experiences, some of them very harrowing. At the conclusion he must go into exile as a hunted outlaw, becomes a soldier of fortune himself and is launched on lifetime military career. In the process the book also records much of the history of the Monmouth Rebellion, from the point of view of someone living in seventeenth century England.
