For those interested in the facts of history presented in an interesting, absorbing tale, G. A. Henty has done a masterful job. I have the hardcopy of the book for myself, but thought this would be a 'youth' version which I purchased for my grandson, 13. My only complaint is that the print is very small, an observation also made by my grandson. I have several of Henty's books, and they are all excellent. An easy way to learn about history.
