Out on the Pampas was the exciting story overheard by a friend who encouraged Mr. Henty to have it published, launching his amazing career as "The Boy’s Own Historian." In the mid 1800’s, the Hardy family relocates to Argentina, joining other British settlers trying to start a better life for themselves in a new land. They face many obstacles and perils in this rugged life-style: surveying, building, planting, raising animals, and fighting off attacks from the natives. The children in the story—Charles, Hubert, Maud, and Ethel—are named after Mr. Henty’s own children!
