Overview

G.A. Henty was a 19th century novelist, special correspondent, and Imperialist. His best-known works are historical adventures. While most of the 122 books he wrote were for children, he also wrote adult novels, non-fiction such as The March to Magdala (1868) and Those Other Animals (1891), short stories for the likes of The Boy's Own Paper, and edited the Union Jack, a weekly boys magazine. Wulf the Saxon is an action filled story of the Norman conquest. The adventure begins "From one of the side doors of the palace a page, some fifteen or sixteen years of age, ran down the steps in haste. He was evidently a Saxon by his fair hair and fresh complexion, and any observer of the time would have seen that he must, therefore, be in the employment of Earl Harold, the great minister, who had for many years virtually ruled England in the name of its king."

I am a senior in high school. I read this book last year, and it was one of the most interesting books i've read. Even better is that the events go along with real historical events. I definately recommend this book, especially if you are interested in medieval type stories.

I am a freshman in high school now, and you will never believe this, but i went to a prestigious private school and had to read this over the summer going into FOURTH grade!!! Can you believe that? Terrible book for anybody younger than college level! Do NOT read this book for fun! It's definately not!
