Wild Angel by Mary Merriwell: by Max Merriwell

By Pat Murphy

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

When Sarah McKensie's parents are murdered, the young girl is saved by a mother wolf and raised in the pack. Part Mowgli, part Tarzan of the Apes, Sarah becomes the Wild Angel of the Sierras, rescuing those in need, while eluding her parents' killer, a man who still wants to see her dead.

An amazing young savage, Sarah lives with the wolves, hunts with the wolves, fights for dominance in the pack. She watches people from a distance, but she does not think of herself as one of them. She belongs to the pack. How can such a child be reclaimed for civilization?

Sarah's struggle for survival brings together a fascinating assortment of characters: Max Phillips, who found her parents' bodies and never gave up the search for the missing child; Audrey North, Sarah's aunt, who wants nothing more than to find her niece; and, ultimately, a young Temperance missionary, Professor Serunca's travelling circus, and a mysterious itinerant fortune-teller named Gitana.

But first comes a phase of revolution - violent, very bloody, and prolonged, which in the end may fail to achieve anything but social destruction . . .

Even if a young man did get to feel a bit squeezed, growing up in a tin can 600 million klicks from Mother Earth...But the International Space Administration was losing its patience with the slow advance of science. There was talk of closing down the lab. The Earthside pols wanted publicity, adventure and profits - and not necessarily in that order.So Matt had a bright idea. He figured he'd steal a spacesuit.

Its discovery has unleashed a global storm of intrigue, theft andespionage, and is pushing nations to the brink of war. Its substance has scientists baffled. And the miracle it contains does not belong on this Earth.It is mystery and madness -- an enigma with no equal in recordedhistory. It is mankind's greatest discovery ... and worst nightmare. It may have already obliterated a world. Ours is next.

Authors:

'No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's...'So begins H. G. Wells' classic novel in which Martian lifeforms take over planet Earth. As the Martians emerge, they construct giant killing machines - armed with heatrays - that are impervious to attack. Advancing upon London they destroy everything in their path. Everything, except the few humans they collect in metal traps.Victorian England is a place in which the steam engine is state-of-the-art technology and powered flight is just a dream. Mankind is helpless against the killing machines from Mars, and soon the survivors are left living in a new stone age.
