Allen French.

Allen French is a writer whose books are amazingly captivating and extremely well written.

For the next three weeks I will be reviewing some of his books, especially: The story of Rolf and the Viking bow, The red keep, and The Lost Baron.

These three books are very well written and are for all ages.

Allen French (28 November 1870-1946) was a historian and children's book author who did major research on the battles of Lexington and Concord, during the American Revolutionary War. He was a founding member and president of the Thoreau Society.
Born in Boston, French attended Harvard University for his undergraduate education.
