"Of all the chapters of history, there are few more interesting or wonderful than that which tells the story of the rise and progress of Venice."
And thus begins another swashbuckling adventure by G. A. Henty. The great city-state is in trouble from Genoa and other neighboring cities, and of course it's up to a young English lad to save her! Kidnappings, sea battles, dangerous adventures of all sorts and even a little romance combine to make this one of Henty's most exciting novels. Climb aboard and join us for an adventure that will leave you on the edge of your seat! (Summary by Rachel)

One of my favorite Henty books. Most of the readers are great (especially the last), but one I was thankful only did a couple chapters.

Great story as are all of G A Henty’s writings. The first reader was not so polished as was the final reader.
