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.
Setting: 1850's America
Frank Norris, accused of theft and unable to prove his innocence, leaves for excitement and adventure in the California Gold Fields of 1850's America. He sails the Atlantic, braves a storm while working as a barge man on the Mississippi, survives an Indian attack while crossing the plains with a caravan, strikes it rich in the California Gold Mines, and is finally able to clear his name and return to England to claim his rightful inheritance. A great adventure story that illuminates the trials and tribulations of many who traveled to California during the great Gold Rush!
