His first book for children, Out on the Pampas, was written in 1868. He wrote 122 books in total, most of which were for children, but also included novels for adults, non-fiction and short stories. Henty died on 16 November 1902 in Dorset, shortly before completing his last novel, By Conduct and Courage.

This was about a boy who left his home in England because his uncle had given him money to go to India and become a rich merchant when the French and English were battling over who would rule India. Instead of becoming a rich merchant, the boy became a solider in the English army. He fought so well that he rose to officer rank. When he returned home, he was a colonial and had earned almost 100,000 pounds for winning battles. I liked that there was an action-packed war with plenty of battles in this book. I learned that some people can be very faithful if you do something kind for them and that even a cook can fight well. I think boys who like to read books with plenty of battles would especially enjoy this book.
