From the Back Cover:

Lost Classics is proud to bring you another of G. A. Henty's adventure stories for boys. Henty wrote his first book for young people in 1868. Its popularity spawned some eighty more. This is the third Henty novel on the Lost Classics list. Writing in World magazine George Grant reminisced about reading Henty as a child: "Whenever I ran across (a Henty book) in our local library I quickly checked it out, rushed home, and read itusually without putting it down."

The Young Carthaginian is a departure from the first two Henty books on the Lost Classics list. Set in ancient times during the Punic wars between Carthage and Rome, it follows the adventures of young Malchus, an officer in Hannibal's army. Henty describes the army's incredible journey crossing the Alps in fascinating detail providing both a lesson in ancient history and a can't-put-it-down story.

An exciting excerpt from The Young Carthaginian:

"After lying for a couple of hours Malchus rose to his feet, and issuing from the bushes looked round. He had resumed his armor and sword. As he stepped out a sudden shout arose, and he saw within a hundred yards of him a body of natives, some hundred strong, approaching. They had already caught sight of him.

"'Nessus,' he exclaimed, without looking round, 'lie still! I am seen, and shall be taken in a minute. It is hopeless for me to try to escape. You will do me more good by remaining hid and trying to free me from their hands afterward.'

"So saying, and without drawing his sword, Malchus quietly advanced toward the natives, who were rushing down toward him with loud shouts. Flight or resistance would be, as he had at once seen, hopeless, and it was only by present submission he could hope to save his life."

Valuable Bonus for Homeschoolers--Includes a Build-Your-Vocabulary Glossary of some 501 words. Each word is cross-referenced with its page number so children can easily go back and see how it is used in the story.
