Henty Books as Unit Studies

There are two types of fiction: hard fiction and soft.  Hard fiction takes place in a reality that is as true to science, engineering, and history as possible with drama and characters added to make the story.  Henty writes hard historical fiction.

In G. A. Henty's, Cat of Bubastes, topics such as irrigation, deserts, and crocodiles are discussed in the context of the story.  This is true of the stories in general so that the student, while reading the books, is given a history lesson, since each story takes place in an actual historical setting, as well as topical studies as characters interact with the environment around them.

Military discussions often take into account the engineering and science involved.

History unit studies can be made of the five areas of:
