Post Kingston, W.H.G.: The Young Llanero v1 20 sep 2009

WHG Kingston:
William Henry Giles Kingston (28 February 1814 - 5 August 1880), writer of tales for boys, was born in London, but spent much of his youth in Oporto, where his father was a merchant.
His first book, The Circassian Chief, appeared in 1844. His first book for boys, Peter the Whaler, was published in 1851, and had such success that he retired from business and devoted himself entirely to the production of this kind of literature, in which his popularity was deservedly great; and during 30 years he wrote upwards of 130 tales, including
He also conducted various papers, including The Colonist, and Colonial Magazine and East India Review. He was also interested in emigration, volunteering, and various philanthropic schemes. For services in negotiating a commercial treaty with Portugal he received a Portuguese knighthood, and for his literary labours a Government pension.


The Young Llanero: A Story of War and Wild Life in Venezuela was first published in 1877 and targeted the older boys. The hero is the son of an Irish rebel that lifes now in Venezuela. The tale takes place during the South American war of independence and our young hero is involved in all kinds of adventures involving wild animals, Indians and Spaniards!

This book is quite heavily illustrated and therefore quite big.
