About the Author:

SIR WALTER SCOTT (1771 1832), Scottish novelist and poet, is known as the father of both the regional and historical novel. His early works were successful verse romances, but he achieved lasting fame with his prose. A law clerk, sheriff, and baronet, he was also part owner of a financially troubled publishing house. This and the expense of building and furnishing his country house at Abbotsford nearly ruined him. Everything he wrote from 1813 on was done in part to repay the debts he had incurred debts he was determined to pay off by his own labor.

From AudioFile:

Many legends have accumulated about Saladin, the twelfth-century sultan whose capture of Jerusalem led to the Third Crusade. The Saracen (Arab) leader is said to have performed prodigious feats of valor, to have possessed uncommon wisdom and cunning, and even to have "out-chivalled" the chivalrous Christian knights who opposed him. In THE TALISMAN (1825), Sir Walter Scott, the most popular novelist of his day, contrasts him with a poor but noble Scottish knight in service to Richard Lionheart. Entering the Crusaders' camp in disguise, Saladin saves said knight from the dishonor brought about by various intrigues. In narrating the romance, Robert Whitfield excels at phrasing, which, accompanied by his pleasant voice and British accent, makes this tape pleasant listening. His pace, however, is a bit too brisk for perfect intelligibility, and he seams deaf to the book's rhythms and lyricism.
