Rewritten[edit]

"Today, if you were to ask the typical man on the street if he had heard of the Christian author of 19th century boys' literature, less than one out of a thousand could respond positively."

I suggest that this particular passage is rewritten... Dreap 20:00, 18 September 2008 (UTC)Dreap

Added slave trade[edit]

I added a quote from the author about the American Slave trade. Truly inspiring. Enjoy!!!

thoroughly healthy in tone[edit]

"His stories had the merit of being thoroughly healthy in tone" - what is meant by this and can such an assertion possibly be NPOV? Mutt Lunker (talk) 23:11, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

The Coral Island is the only one of Ballantyne's novels still read and remembered today[edit]

This is unverifiable, particularly as reprints of other Ballantyne novels such as "Martin Rattler" are still being sold. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 103.19.11.28 (talk) 08:54, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
