From the foothills of the Andes to Maidenhead; and from the jewel of the British Empire to the heart of Yorkshire, these yarns - inspired by the Boys' Own adventure stories of old and set mainly in the early 1900s, promise to delight, shock and enthral in equal measure.
Marvel as Roger of the Raj defends himself against the Empire's greatest scourge; swoon as Whinfrey puts a halt to the Kaiser's fiendish plans; celebrate as Gordon sees his team to victory; and recoil at the horrors awaiting any young chap enrolled by his parents at the notorious Graybridge School.
