Meet the Author

George Alfred Henty (1832-1902) was a prolific British novelist, war correspondent, imperialist, and veteran of the Crimean War. Henty developed an intense interest in history and other subjects as a child; numerous illnesses left him bedridden and reading was one of his few escapes. As a captain in the military, he reported on the Crimean War and the difficult and primitive conditions the common soldiers faced. He turned to writing stories for young readers in the 1860s, and soon proved popular. Henty often published three or four novels annually during his peak years.
