All original text with a beautiful new cover design. Margaret Leighton has created twelve wonderful historical fiction stories that span the Middle Ages from the withdrawal of the Roman legions from Britain to the fall of Venice as Queen of the Sea. The heroes and heroines of these stories are young people set in the dramatic events that have shaped Western Cvilization. "The settings, the customs and ideas of the people pictured here are as true to the period as long and careful study could make them. Whenever an historical figure does appear, like Vortigern or Charlemagne or Alfred, he is only doing what records tell us that he actually did do." - foreword These stories inspire courage, love, endurance, hope, industry and many other virtues.
