From the Back Cover:

Set in England during the fifteenth-century Wars of the Roses, this swashbuckling historical novel by the author of Treasure Island and Kidnapped tells the story of young Dick Shelton. Betrayed by his treacherous and brutal guardian, Sir Daniel Brackley, Dick seeks the help of John Amend-All, leader of the mysterious fellowship of the Black Arrow—and Brackley's sworn enemy. Pitted against fierce fighters, a treacherous priest, and Sir Daniel, Dick seeks to become a knight and rescue his true love.
Brimming with adventure, suspense, and romance, this thrilling tale presents a classic portrait of England during one of its most tumultuous eras, as Dick is pulled by his loyalties to the houses of both York and Lancaster. He must make a crucial choice, for his fate and the fate of England hang in the balance.

About the Author:

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-94) studied law at Edinburgh University but was determined to become a writer. His extensive travels throughout Europe formed the basis of his first two books. Stevenson is most famous for such thrilling novels as Treasure Island (1883), Kidnapped (1886), The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886), and The Master of Ballantrae (1889). When he died, he left behind the unfinished manuscript for Weir of Hermiston.
Gary Hoppenstand, a professor at Michigan State University, teaches in the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and American Cultures. He has written introductions for two other Signet Classic editions: Baroness Orczy’s The Scarlet Pimpernel and Rafael Sabitini’s Scaramouche. Considered the leading authority on the adventure story, he is currently writing a literary history of popular fiction. He is also president of the national Popular Culture Association and the current editor of The Journal of Popular Culture.
