    The Dash for Khartoum relates the story of Lord Wolseley’s expedition to rescue General Gordon from the besieged city of Khartoum, an event that occurred during Henty’s lifetime. Rupert and Edgar Clinton, two young boys who have been raised as brothers by Captain Clinton and his wife, accompany the expedition and encounter the hardships of the desert and the dangers of battle. Edgar is lost on a night march, and when the troops are withdrawn after the tragedy at Khartoum, Rupert Clinton dons a disguise and sets out in search of him in the deserts of Africa.
