Publisher's Summary

Bring history back to life through Jim Hodges' historically accurate, exciting, and edifying audio recordings.
When Harold Godwinson is crowned king of England in 1066, William of Normandy contests his right to be king because of an oath Harold had earlier sworn to support William's own acquisition of the throne. Henty's treatment of this critical time in history of the English people is even-handed, and his portrayal of Harold Godwinson - a king much neglected in our day - is a sympathetic one. Wulf of Steyning, a young Saxon thane in the service of Earl Harold, accompanies him on his fateful trip to Normandy and takes part in the Welsh wars, the Battle of Stamford Bridge, and the Battle of Hastings. Growing to manhood in such tumultuous times, Wulf's fidelity and honor earn him the respect of all he serves.
The Henty Historical Novel Collection, written by George Henty in the 1800s, covers many time periods in history throughout the world. In this collection you will learn history, geography, and vocabulary while also discovering hero characters for your children to emulate.

Another Henty History Lesson In Novel Form

Jim Hodges delivers a nice rendition of "Wulf the Saxon" with apropos inflection and dramatization. It is good to see there are more! Awesome story for building character and instilling values in young men-in-training, or a right-rousing read for slightly older adventurers.
