G.A. Henty's specialty was combining history and fiction for children. In A Tale of the Western Plains the nineteenth century author crafts an exciting adventure story drawing on real life cowboy stories. "In treating cowboy life, " Henty tells us, " indeed, it may well be said that truth is stranger than fiction." The result: a can't put it down story that transports children back to the early days of the Wild West. Five hundred dollars reward. The above sum will be paid by James Campbell, attorney, San Francisco, to any one who will give him information as to the whereabouts of William Tunstall, who was last heard of four years ago in California. A simple ad in a Sacramento paper. A simple ad that changes Bill Tunstall's life and the life of his young nephew, Hugh. From California during the Gold Rush to the English countryside and its landed gentry and back to America's vast land of cowboys and Indians, Henty's riproaring story follows Hugh Tunstall's exploits from England to the American West. Hugh's exploits in America start in Texas where the lawlessness of the West rears its ugly head. Working on a cattle ranch, fighting Indians, chasing kidnappers all play a part in Hugh's escapades in the West. Includes a Build Your Vocabulary Glossary of some 430 words and definitions. Each word is cross referenced with its page numbers so children can easily go back and see how it is used in the story.
