G.A. Henty novels are highly researched as well as drawn from his first-hand experiences of people, places, and events. The years 1400-1403 were among the most stirring in the history of England.  Owen Glendower, angered by the usurpation of the English throne by Henry IV, carried fire and slaughter to the Welsh counties, capturing most of the strong places held by the English, and foiling three invasions led by the king himself. A coalition under the English Percy, Welshmen Glendower and Mortimer, and Scotsman Douglas, tried to combine forces to unseat Henry, but were themselves defeated at the battle of Shrewsbury.  The continual state of unrest and warfare on “both sides of the border” are full of stirring adventures for our hero, Oswald Forster.

Author Bio: G. A. Henty

George Alfred Henty (1832–1902) was born in Trumpington, England. He studied at Cambridge but left without his degree to serve in the Crimean War. After several failed attempts at careers, he decided in 1865 to become a writer, beginning as a correspondent for the Standard. He wrote his first boys’ adventure, Out of the Pampas, in 1868, and its popularity spurred him to write some eighty more children’s books.
