Olive Kitteridge Elizabeth Strout. The story of At the Point of the Bayonet begins with the attempt to conquer this powerful people. At sixteen he obtained a commission in the English army, and his knowledge of the Mahratta tongue, combined with his ability and bravery, enabled him to render great service in the Mahratta War, and carried him, through many frightful perils by land and sea, to high rank.
British writer George Alfred Henty, who came to be known as G. Henty, began his storytelling with his own children. After the evening meal, it was his habit to spend an hour or more telling the children a story that he would resume the next day, and the next, until complete.
Some of his stories took weeks to tell! A friend was present one day and watched the spell-bound reaction of all the children present. He commended Mr. Henty that he had an exceptional gift, and suggested that he write down his stories for the enjoyment of others beyond his home. Henty took the counsel, began to write, and the result was over books! Besides these came shorter stories for numerous British magazines. His heroes are smart, devoted to their country, and often find themselves in situations of great danger.
