Overview

The Collected Works of G.A. Henty Vol. VII by G.A. Henty

THE COLLECTED WORKS OF G.A. HENTY VOL. VII contains eight novels from G.A. Henty's later body of work (1901-1905). Henty's novels were an important contribution to the genre of boys' historical adventure novels, which were extremely popular in the United States, Britain, and other countries during the late 19th well into the 20th centuries. A noted imperialist, his work generally centers around a boy or young man (with occasional female protagonists as well) in an historical setting, including various colonial wars involving the British Empire. A number of Henty novels involved other historical settings, including the Punic Wars, the middle ages, and the crusades. Includes an active table of contents for easy navigation.

About 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.
