Reviews - What do customers think about The Boy's Guide to the Historical Adventures of G. A. Henty (Vocabulary of a Warrior)?

A great timesaver  Dec 9, 2007

History Buffs: A Terrific and Useful Little Reference Book  Apr 8, 2007
HOME EDUCATORS: If you are trying to put together a history-based curriculum, this volume is very helpful! You can gauge which time periods in your student's course of study need some bolstering up (or livening up) and search in this book for the proper Henty novel to introduce. For example, to bulk up our study on "Ancient Times," I needed a novel about Hannibal. This terrific reference book tells me to get Henty's "The Young Carthaginian" to meet that requirement.

Another problem it solves is that sometimes a history-based curriculum can get predictable. Everyone seems to be covering the same things and the only variance is how deeply they're studied. This guide covers all of Henty's books and makes it easy to locate his books on obscure subjects and events which you can tantalize your children with. Children seem to love citing these forgotten tales and bedazzling their peers and family with them!

This volume will also prove invaluable to PEOPLE EDUCATING THEMSELVES. As an adult who is battling her "learning gaps," I just page through this reference until I find something that doesn't ring ANY bells! By reading a Henty, I enjoy a terrific adventure (which I can later discuss with my children), educate myself and, if I want to, pursue the subject more deeply later on.
The Boy's Guide to the Historical Adventures of G. A. Henty  Jan 16, 2007
When you open this book you will see: one book title and an introduction, per page. It's good if you want to sample a complete list of Henty books.
Must for any Henty Lover or Inquirer  May 12, 2004
This is a great book for any Henty collector or inquirer. The book gives a brief synopsis of many of Henty's works in chronological order. I find it invaulable in picking the next book I want to buy and read. Henty is a great author for home educators, history buffs, and action adventure readers. The books contain excellent morals and are historically accurate.

G.A. Henty wrote arround 144 books. Many of the books revolve around a fictional character who interacts with real persons from that historical period. Heroism, honor, courage, and leadership are integral characteristics of the main protagonists. I have trouble putting down a Henty story. I highly recommend this resource.
Great Book  Dec 6, 2002
This Book has the most information that I can find on G.A. Henty!
