Adventure stories don't get any better than this! Plus, the reader is drinking in history without even trying! Even though G. A. Henty authored these books in the late 19th century, and the stories are set hundreds of years before that, the tales he tells are timeless. Bravery, chivalry, heroism, leadership, faithfulness, determination and wisdom abound in these reprints. In some of the stories, the advance or defense of Christianity is also an important part of the story. These books were originally written for boys, but anyone young or old who enjoys a good adventure story will want to read these. Available in hardbound, softcover and "featherweight" (mass market) editions.
