The Sword And The Stone recreates, against the background of magnificent pageantry and dark magic that was medieval England, the education and training of young King Arthur, who was to become the greatest of Britain's legendary rulers.
Growing up in a colorful world peopled by knights in armor and fair damsels, foul monsters and evil witches, young Arthur slowly learns the code of being a gentleman.  Under the wise guidance of Merlin, the all-powerful magician for whom life progresses backwards, the king-to-be is trained in the gusty pursuits of falconry, jousting, hunting and sword play.  He is even transformed by his remarkable old tutor into various animals, so that he may experience life from all points of view.  In every conceivable and exciting way he is readied for the day when he, and he alone of all Englishmen, is destined to draw forth the marvelous sword from the magic stone and become the rightful King of' England.

About the Author:

Terence Hanbury White was born in 1906 in India. The author of poems, books about hunting and other sports, and some detective stories, he found fame and success with `The Sword in the Stone' (1939), the brilliantly imaginative retelling of King Arthur's early life.

From AudioFile:

The Sword in the Stone was first published in 1938 and later incorporated into White's four-part Arthurian opus, THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING. (This recording includes the original text and some additional scenes that were deleted from the more familiar 1950s edition.) The story follows Arthur's childhood up to the momentous day when he pulls the sword from the stone and discovers his true identity. Jason's narration reveals that he understands White's sense of humor. He plays up the comedy particularly well in the dialogue: he is remarkably adept at giving individual voices to each character, from the naïve Arthur to the world-weary Merlyn and the buffoonish King Pellinore, and switching convincingly between regional accents.
