This chapter challenges post-colonial readings of late nineteenth-century adventure stories. It shows how this fictional genre engages productively with colonialization, rather than simplistically reproducing its values. A wide range of stories are surveyed and analysed with a view to demonstrating the sophistication and vividness of this neglected body of work.

Keywords:   Adventure stories, Colonization, Postcolonialism
