Unedited, unabridged, original format editions with original colored cover art, these Henty books reproduce the original in careful detail.
The story is laid in Yorkshire at the commencement of the present century [in G. A. Henty's time], when the price of food induced by the war and the introduction of machinery drove the working-classes to desperation, and caused them to band themselves in that wide-spread organization known as the Luddite Society. There is an abundance of adventure in the tale, but its chief interest lies in the character of the hero, and the manner in which he is put on trial for his life, but at last comes victorious "through the fray."
