    1. G.A. Henty is a predictable but delightful author. Since his books were written almost a hundred years ago, the lead character is always a young, promising Anglo-Saxon youth with so me sort of problem to be overcome. Usually by some sort of military achievement. This is the fare that generations ago grew up reading to inspire them to greatness and to succeed. Today's youth could benefit from reading this genre, even though it is so politically incorrect that it would not stand a chance in today' [...]


    2. What a pleasant surprise! This novel begins like a Thomas Hardy novel with a wonderful story of a young boy and his associates in England but after the boy becomes a young man and enters the military, it reads like a Bernard Cornwell Richard Sharpe military adventure novel with plenty of historical fiction and non-fiction.

    3. "With Wolfe in Canada" is a wonderful book in both action and story. In the colonies you can feel the rough and toughness and in England you are warmed in the heart with the picture of golden afternoons in and around Sidmouth in the Devon Countryside.


    4. Another of Henty's historical novels in which the juvenile hero grows to maturity, faces adversity, encounters real-life heroes (in this case Col. George Washington), and in the end wins renown - and the girl.

    6. beginning and ending were 5 star reading, rest was well written and informative but not of a lot of interest to me. Very easy to read. I had read very little about this period of time in Canada prior to this.
