Timberdoodle's review Learn more
 
Do you have a child who hates reading, especially reading about history? If so, your solution may be to read the books out loud to your children - a wonderful answer, though a bit taxing on you as the parent. What teaching parent is looking for more work?

Here is an even better solution that will free you from reading aloud while still giving your children access to Henty's excellent literature. Each lively, professionally-recorded, and unabridged edition includes a single MP3-format CD for up to 13 HOURS of listening time PER BOOK. These books are professionally read by Jim Hodges. Now you can have your children listen and learn while you tackle your never-ending “to-do” list.

More about Henty's historical novels…

If you also are looking for history books for your older children, books that will be historically accurate and will stretch their minds, but will not compromise your family's standard of decency, you will be very pleased to learn about the works of G.A. Henty (1832-1902).

Known as "The Boy's Own Historian," his historical epics are profoundly factual stories that highlight some of the greatest people and moments in history. Written to satisfy young men's insatiable hunger for adventure, Henty's stories can be equally riveting for your daughters.

Each story revolves around a fictional boy hero who is diligent, courageous, and intelligent. Where needed, these boys fought wars, sailed seas, prospected for gold, and aided in the overthrow of evil empires. Through Henty's heroes, your child will meet historically strategic leaders and acquire an awareness of the cultures of various European and pagan civilizations.

Note: in accordance with the period in which they were written, there are a couple of books where an occasional derogatory term is used.

Story:
The conquest of the Aztec Empire by Hernando Cortez and a mere handful of Spaniards is one of the greatest romances of history. A writer of fiction would scarcely have dared to invent so improbable a story, but it is true. Fortunately, Cortez was able to ally himself with many peoples conquered by the Aztecs who were all too happy to assist in their downfall. Roger Hawkshaw, a shipwrecked Englishman, presenting himself as a long-lost Spaniard, assists Cortez in his many adventures.
