For more than a century the G.A. Henty adventure stories have been beloved by boys and girls all over the world for their fast moving and engaging narratives of great times in history. Each Henty hero exemplifies the traditional virtues of hard work, courage, and high personal honor.
And, each hero is at the center of fast-moving adventures that capture the reader's interest and will not let go - adventures that take place during great historical events. Through the eyes of the hero, readers experience the horrors and trials of the French Revolution, life in Colonial Australia, and the Fall of Jerusalem. These books have made history come alive for generations of children, and provided them examples of the highest Christian character.
Henty knew his subject. First as a British soldier in the Crimean War, and later as a war correspondent covering campaigns throughout the British Empire, Henty experienced first hand many of the events he describes. For this reason Henty's descriptions of places and events have an element of realism to them which makes them stand out from other historical fiction. Many of the descriptions are of places that Henty visited or of events that he actually witnessed.
