9780803220355: Swords from the West

Beset by enemies on every side and torn by internal divisions, the crusader kingdoms were a hotbed of intrigue, where your greatest ally might be your natural enemy. Because lives and kingdoms often rested on the edge of a sword blade, it was a time when a bold heart and a steady hand would see you far—so long as you watched your back. Here, for the first time, are all seventeen of Harold Lamb’s uncollected crusader stories in one volume. Read now of the fall of kingdoms and the fate of doomed men, of desperate battles and brave comrades, of shrewd maids and scheming nobles. Join Nial O’Gordon, a young crusader riding deep into Asia to forget his past. Venture forth with Sir Robert of Antioch to cross blades with the Mongol hordes. Join King Richard the Lionhearted for his last battle. Stand firm beside Sir John and his Arab friend Khalil against a band of traitors. And sail out with Michael Bearn on a mission of vengeance, as he risks his life to bring down a sultan and his kingdom.

Review:

“Lamb knew how to write straight-ahead adventure the way Michelangelo knew how to paint.”—S. M. Stirling (S. M. Stirling 2009-03-06)

"Rest assured that every single solitary tale within the covers of Swords From the West is worth reading."—Deuce Richardson, Cimmerian (Deuce Richardson Cimmerian 2009-09-30)

"As a young writer and history buff, I loved Harold Lamb, and this reprinting of the seventeen so-called "Crusader stories" from Adventure Magazine reminded me why. . . . His imagination, his gifts of plot and action writing, and his passion for worlds and peoples not white, not western and not like us, make the book a delight to read."—Cecelia Holland, Historical Novels Review (Cecelia Holland Historical Novels Review)
