You can find a lot of the G A Henty books on Amazon (not affiliate link) and one of our favorite places is Librivox. If you have never heard of Librivox you really need to check it out. A lot of people have read books and put them in audio format. Some read better than others and we have our favorites. But they make great audio books to listen to when driving. Plus it's the full book which is great and cuts a lot of 'I'm bored' out of our road trips. Of course our favorite audio's are the G A Henty Audio Classics we have reviewed from Heirloom Audio Productions We have all the ones they have done so far and I am hoping to get the lasted "The Cat of Bubaste' soon!!! These productions are like having a audio movie and are perfect for all the family. We recently listened to ours again on a road trip - at the request of my husband and kids. No movies were watched in the car for 8 hours - they are that good!!!
