Adventure Stories Part 2

Vintage e-booksI thought about saying “This post is for the boys,” but the truth is that I have devoured a fair number of Henty novels in my life, and will probably read many more.  They are my escapist literature, second only to Georgette Heyer and Baroness Orczy.  Still, these books were written with boys in mind and will likely offer the highest appeal to the male gender.  Ballantyne is one I have never read, but who has been highly recommended based on my love of Henty.
