This book is one of the best G.A Henty i have ever read.

This was a good Henty novel. It had adventure, character building, good morals, and some interesting facts about 14th C. Venice. Henty's stories tend to move along, and this one fit the mold nicely. It is a good boy's novel, but adults can profit from it as well.
A very masculine adventure/history book. I really enjoyed reading this book with my husband, and my kids were begging me to tell them what was happening next!

I learned about Venice, boats, and battle!

Definitely a young-adult novel but a fun one none-the-less. Learn how all of Venice was saved by an English teenager.

One of G. A. Henty's best unlike some of his works it's gripping form the first page!

Some stories took weeks! A friend was present one day and watched the spell-bound reaction of his children suggesting Henty write down his stories so others could enjoy them. He did. Henty wrote approximately 144 books in ad...more
