G. A. Henty Book Reports

Peter Twitchell 3/23/09

Title: Winning His Spurs

Author: G. A. Henty

What Type of Book: Historic Fiction


Setting: The Holy Land (Israel)

Main Character Names: Cuthbert, Sir Walter the Earl of Evesham, Cnut, King Richard the Lion Hearted, Sir Philip the Count of Brabant, Saladin, Sir Rudolph Fleming

Cuthbert is the son of a Norman Knight who married a Daughter of a Saxon franklin. By rescuing Sir Walters’s daughter from a false Knight, he gets to be Sir Walters’s page for the Crusades. After many adventures king Richard makes Cuthbert a Knight. After the Crusade, Cuthbert goes back to England were he finds the estates of Sir Walter (who was killed in the Holy Land) given to Sir Rudolph Fleming. After many more adventures he gets back his own lands.

I really liked the Battles.


I didn’t like when Saladin takes Cuthbert as a slave.

I would recommend this book because it is exciting history.
