Some things get better with time. Historical fiction by G.A. Henty (1832-1902) is one of those things. Henty was a prolific author and journalist in the 19th century. Drawing on his experience and knowledge as a war correspondent, Henty was a master of weaving history into his fictional stories about courageous young men living in difficult times marked by military conflict. His stories provide insight into some of the greatest conflicts of history while introducing the reader to characters that embodied the values of integrity, duty and virtue. While aimed at older children and teens, even adults will enjoy his writings.
Alacrity Press has reprinted dozens of Henty's classics. We forsee completing our Henty collection at some point in the next several years.
