Tales of History & Adventure

Winning His Spurs

Setting: AD 1188-1192 – King Richard the Lionhearted – Europe and the Middle East – 3rd Crusade to the Hold Land. 

Story: Mr. Henty weaves a story of the life and times of King Richard the Lion-hearted that is yet to be equaled. Cuthbert de Lance, the hero of the story, is of Norman blood on his father’s side and Saxon by his mother. By providing timely aid to the Earl of Evesham, Cuthbert is rewarded by being allowed to go to the Crusade as his page. He gains a reputation for valor and prowess due to gallant deeds and his resourcefulness not only helps King Richard but aids Cuthbert in many a ‘hairbreadth escape.’

When people ask us for recommendations for good books for boys, our first thought is usually G.A. Henty. Why? His heroes are fantastic role models of the manly virtues, yet likeable and adventurous and every bit of the history you learn is real. Henty was an Army officer, war correspondent, a historian who began telling these stories to his own children. He was known for writing with stacks of primary source documents surrounding him and you’ll be hard pressed to find a historical error of any kind. And they are just plain fun!

Written in the late 1900s, the language can be a bit challenging for some boys (but it’s so good for them), so we recommend audiobooks! Our friend Jim Hodges does a wonderful unabridged version (you don’t want to miss a word!) and we are delighted to sell them!

These audiobooks are recorded on mp3 CDs so you only need one and not ten or twelve for one book, but you’ll need to play them on an mp3 CD player (can be bought cheaply at any discount store), your laptop, a DVD player or your computer. Our old van has a cassette deck, so we use a tape adapter and plug it into a laptop or CD player’s headphone jack.

These are the books the Young boys grew up on — enjoy!
