Overview

We and the World, A Book for Boys. This popular classic work by Juliana Horatia Gatty Ewing is in the English language, includes the graphics of the original edition.

"'A friend in need is a friend indeed'. I have often thought that the biggest bit of good luck (and I was lucky), which be fell me on my outset into the world, was that the man I sat next to in the railway carriage was not a rogue. I travelled third class to Liverpool for more than one reason-it was the cheapest way, besides which I did not wish to meet any family friends-and the man I speak of was a third-class passenger, and he went to Liverpool too."

Juliana Horatia Ewing (1841-1885) was an English writer of children's stories. These display sympathetic insight into child life, admiration for things military, and strong religious faith.

Juliana Horatia Ewing - sometimes also styled Juliana Horatia Gatty Ewing, or just "Mrs. Ewing" - is credited by Roger Lancelyn Green as being the author of the the "first outstanding child-novels" in English literature. In addition to her children's novels, Ewing also edited a number of magazines for young readers, including the Nursery Magazines (from 1856), the Monthly Packet and the monthly Aunt Judy's Magazine (both from 1866).
