The main biographer of Jeffery Farnol calls him the champion of best sellers. This was his first best seller, the one that made him famous. Several of the characters in this book reappear in later books, mainly because he got so much fan mail asking for more about those people. He wrote this "coming of age," novel about a clueless university trained nobleman at 20, who decides to go walking in the countryside of Edwardian England to learn how to be an independent man. He wanders from tiny hamlet to little village to lonely tavern on the road, all the while at the mercy of the traveling road people he meets along the way, as well as the country people who live along the back road. He faces dangerous people and situations, gets robbed, gets taught how to work, learns about the value of money, gets help from other poor people, saves a couple of fair maids only to leave them behind, learns a trade, learns how to fight, saves another nobleman from suicide... on and on, one adventure and new interesting friends after another, until he starts seeing people he already met, and they start pointing out how he is now different from before. Needless to say, he grows up, he gets an amazing girl, he gets a fortune, and a title. Farnol perfected the coming of age novel. It made him famous all over the world. I read that within a year he sold more books in more languages than any others, except the Bible. I have read about 15 others of his books, the Broad Highway is still my favorite. Almost as good was the "Peregrin's Progress," the "Amateur Gentleman," and a pirate treasure adventure book, as well as a couple of books set in the middle ages. He wrote best sellers, sometimes two a year, from 1911 to 1952, right before his death in 1953.

If you are a Jeffrey Farnol fan, this is a must read. It is thoroughly enjoyable and beautifully written. The man was amazing!! I learned of him from George McDonald Fraser, who said that he was one of the top 5 writer's he ever read. Well that was certainly enough for me.
This is my thired Farnol, and I will be reading all of his works, each one has been incredible.
If you have never read Farnol, then PLEASE do, the man wrote beautifully and with a style that cannot be found today at all.

Very fine condition and an author my wife loves. So it was under the tree when it counted and she was surprised I found it on Amazon.

Though the book is lightweight, the type is much too small to read comfortably.

Jeffery Farnol is one of the greatest of the "lost writers." If you love Romance (with a capital "R"), if you seek a truly wacky style replete with a formidable (and at times arcane) vocabulary, if you are willing to suspend reality (whatever the hell that means?) in favor of a rip-roaring tale of love and adventure in which Good forever triumphs and the stout and steadfast lad always gets the lusty and luscious lass, then Farnol and, more specifically, his most popular work, The Broad Highway, are for you. Otherwise, stick with Hemingway.

As ever,

If you're a Georgette Heyer fan with a liking for period language and witty dialogue, try Jeffery Farnol. His books came out in the early 1900s and compare quite favorably to her regency romances. You have the duels, highwaymen, and haughty ladies with a variety of plots. They are great reading.

A splendidly unbelievable mixture of love, duels, mistaken identity, and thoroughly tongue-in-cheek archly written dialogue. Crisp and clear, this novel has been enjoyed by many in the decades since it was first published. Love conquers all. A delight to read---once.
