Marfree, acidfree 1st US Ed; not underlined, club, remainder or ex-library. New-- markedoff for enscription & wrinkled page. Mail SAMEDAY! ; 8.59 x 0.88 x 5.81; 243 pages; From Book News, Inc. When Gerald Canac found a pot of gold in a drainpipe and his father-in-law thinks he stole it, the controversy grows to engulf the whole small town of Rodez, now in southwest France, but at the time divided physically and legally between loyalty to the King of France and to the King of England, who were furiously pursuing the Hundred Years War. Medieval historian Wroe draws from primary documents from the town's archive, written in Latin or the Occitan dialect of the region. Copyright Book News, Inc. Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post ""Singularly engaging and informative, interesting and instructive. [Wroe shows] a sensitive and knowledgeable understanding of the medieval world and those who lived in it . . . [She depicts] a snippet of ordinary life that is also, in miniature, a portrait of medieval society on a larger scale. "" johnstonrw~. Bookseller Inventory # 2536

Editorial Reviews for this title:

Synopsis: Ann Wroe brings to life a rich and perplexing culture of a city physically divided-as so many communities are today-by political factions in this skillful re-creation of fourteenth-century Rodez. Notes, bibliography.
