Publisher's Summary

Bring history back to life through Jim Hodges’ historically accurate, exciting, and edifying audio recordings. Shortly before the United States Revolutionary war against England, most inhabitants were her loyal subjects. France had control of much of southern Canada and the “western” lands of the current states of Pennsylvania and Ohio. Skirmishes abounded for years between English settlers pushing west and French settlers and her Indian accomplices. The Seven Years War in Europe spilled over to the colonies, where General Wolfe finally defeated the French in Quebec. This story includes depictions of the battles of Forts Duquesne and Necessity in Pennsylvania, and Forts Ticonderoga and William Henry in New York, and Quebec in Canada.

The Henty Historical Novel Collection, written by George Henty in the 1800s, covers many time periods in history throughout the world. In this collection, you will learn history, geography, and vocabulary while also discovering hero characters for your children to emulate.

Good, but not Henty’s best book!

This book is several hours in even getting past laying the groundwork of the characters, and finally the main character is off to the “colonies” of the New World. From that point most of the book involves a great deal of historical happenings with the character more of a necessary tag-along in order to share the history. Overall, this is a decent book and the history and happenings are the main thrust. The character is a standard Henty character, yet much less skillfully woven into the fabric of the telling.

We love Henry Novels

Our family has read out loud many of the Henty novels. I was so glad when audible started carrying them since our cassette tapes have worn out from overuse. We would read them aloud to our kids in late elementary school. Although they are targeted for boys 8-12 our 5 year old daughter would get sucked into the story. Jim Hodges is a great reader, so easy to listen to. People would often comment on my kids great vocabulary. I give credit to listening to Henty novels.

An Entertaining History

This is a delightful way to teach how Canada came to be English. There are many details of battles and yet it reads as an adventure rather than a dry text.

And they all lived happily ever after...

This was written in the typical style of a book of its time. The hero is flawless and gets out of one scrape after another with flawless character and incredible good luck. It appears to be a cleaver way of actually sharing true historical details of the "French and Indian War" in Canada.

Bad narrator

The narrator was terrible. Made the whole story less enjoyable. Was he an amateur? Seemed so

French & Indian War

Not Henty's best story, but it tells a key part of British history in North America , from the early leadership of George Washington to Wolfe's victory over 'New France' thus explaining how Canada became English. The early chapters, and the happily ever after ending, are not directly related to the war, and Walsham changes post frequently to follow the key parts of the war.

More Military History than Engaging Story

First off, I'm a big fan of GA Henty's work! But I struggle with Jim Hodges as a reader, and this story never gripped me. You know from the beginning the out come, and the second half of the book is all military campaign with very little human interest. If you're looking for an overview of the military movements of this era, it's well done, well researched (though always with bias). But as a historical fiction story, I felt like it lacked a lot of interest. I've enjoyed other GA Henty novels far more!
