Unknown to many of our generation is the heroic Dutch fight for freedom from Spanish rule. Few have been taught of the persistent efforts of the Prince of Orange or the huge obstacles he faced as the leader of the Dutch. Through the eyes of Ned Martin, the young hero, G. A. Henty transports the reader back to 1579 and the turbulent and troubled times of the Spanish-Dutch War. Learn about the noble character of William the Silent, 16th century Dutch history, and the brutality the Dutch overcame. By Pike and Dyke will both inform and entertain its readers under the matchless storytelling talent of G. A. Henty, "The Boy’s Own Historian."
