Oh, but it is such a long way, and to live among those French people, who have been doing such dreadful things, attacking the Bastille, and, as I have heard you say, passing all sorts of revolutionary laws, and holding their king and queen almost as prisoners in Paris!

Review: In the Reign of Terror: The Adventures of a Westminster Boy

User Review  - Robin - Goodreads

Great as an audiobook. Moves along at a great clip. Holy smokes, didn't realize that this was first published in 1888 until I went to add this review. The book ages incredibly well, I really couldn't tell when listening that it was 126 years old!! Read full review

About the author (2004)

G. A.Henty was born in 1832 and was filled with exciting adventure. He received his education at Westminster School, and he attended Cambridge University. Along with a rigorous course of study, Henty participated in boxing, wrestling, and rowing. The strenuous study and participation in sports prepared Henty to join the British army in Crimea, as a war correspondent witnessing Garbaldi fight in Italy. He was also present in Paris during the Franco-Prussian war, in Spain with the Carlists, at the opening of the Suez Canal, touring India with the Prince of Wales as well as a trip to the California gold fields. Henty wrote approximately 144 books, plus stories for magazines and was dubbed as "The Prince of Story-Tellers" and "The Boy's Own Historian." G. A. Henty died in 1902.
