Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

G. A. Henty (1832-1903) wrote vastly popular, carefully researched books about fictional youngsters who lived during critical periods of history. In this exciting volume, he provides a thrilling glimpse of the struggle between Great Britain and Spain for supremacy of the high seas, as seen through the eyes of a sixteenth-century teenager, Ned Hearne.

Along with three friends, young Ned is swept up in one adventure after another as he accompanies the daring English mariner Francis Drake on amazing voyages of discovery across the Pacific. An eyewitness to the great naval battle between the English fleet and the Spanish Armada, Ned has firsthand views of England's rise as the world's most powerful sea-going nation.

A rousing, old-fashioned tale of ruthless life on the high seas, Under Drakes Flag introduces todays young readers to one of yesteryears most widely read authors—a writer whose many talents earned him the title Prince of Storytellers.

Synopsis:

Adventure on the high seas as seen through the eyes of young Ned Hearne, who experiences a harsh seafaring life, visits strange lands, and witnesses the destruction of the Spanish Armada.
