With Buller in Natal, or, A born leader by G. A Henty( Book )

11 editions published between 1900 and 2002 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The breaking out of the Boer War compelled Chris King, the hero of the story, to flee with his mother from Johannesburg to the sea coast. They were with many other Uitlanders, and all suffered much from the Boers. Reaching a place of safety for their families, Chris and twenty of his friends formed an independent company of scouts. In this service they were with Gen. Yule at Glencoe, then in Ladysmith, then with Buller. In each place they had many thrilling adventures. They were in the great battles and in the lonely fights on the Veldt; were taken prisoners and escaped; and they rendered most valuable service to the English forces. The story is a most interesting picture of the War in South Africa."--From publisher's website

By conduct and courage : a story of the days of Nelson by G. A Henty( Book )

12 editions published between 1904 and 2009 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a rattling story of the battle and the breeze in the glorious days of Parker and Nelson. The hero is brought up in a Yorkshire fishing village, and enters the navy as a ship's boy. In the course of a few months after joining he so distinguishes himself in action with French ships and Moorish pirates that he is raised to the dignity of midshipman. His ship is afterward sent to the West Indies. Here his services attract the attention of the Admiral, who gives him command of a small cutter. In this vessel he cruises about among the islands, chasing and capturing pirates, and even attacking their strongholds. He is a born leader of men, and his pluck, foresight, and resource win him success where men of greater experience might have failed. He is several times taken prisoner: by mutinous negroes in Cuba, by Moorish pirates who carry him as a slave to Algiers, and finally by the French. In this last case he escapes in time to take part in the battles of Cape St. Vincent and Camperdown. His adventures include a thrilling experience in Corsica with no less a companion than Nelson himself."--Publisher's website
A roving commission, or, Through the Black insurrection of Hayti by G. A Henty( Book )

9 editions published between 1899 and 2012 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is one of the most brilliant of Mr. Henty's books. A story of the sea, with all its life and action, it is also full of thrilling adventures on land. So it holds the keenest interest until the end. The scene is a new one to Mr. Henty' s readers, being laid at the time of the Great Revolt of the Blacks, by which Hayti became independent. Toussaint L'Overture appears, and an admirable picture is given of him and of his power."-- Publisher description
