A collection of King Arthur's adventures. Following his ascent to King of Britain to his death.

The powerful lords rode up in their clanking armor and entered the church. There were so many of them that they quite filled the nave and side-aisles of the building. The Archbishop looked at their stern bronzed faces, their heavy beards, their broad shoulders and their glittering armor and prayed God to make the best man in the land king.

*

"She is the Lady of the Lake," says Merlin. "She lives in a rock in the middle of the lake. See, she is coming toward us. And look at what is rising beyond her from the water!" Arthur, wounded from his battle with the knight and holding the pieces of his broken sword, looks out onto the waters where Merlin points, and sees an arm clothed in pure white, holding a huge, cross-hilted sword, so brilliant that his eyes are dazzled. "'Take me,' the writing says, on one side of the sword," said Arthur when he takes the blade into his hands. "And 'Cast me away,' on the other. I'm glad to take the sword, but it saddens me to think of casting it away." Merlin's face grows sad, too. He knows what is to pass in the future -- and is well aware that when the time comes to cast the sword away, much evil will have befallen the young king at his side.

About the Author:

Maude Radford Warren (1875-1934) was a Canadian author of children's literature and short fiction. Warren was born in 1875 in Wolf Island, Ontario. She was the author of many children's books, including King Arthur and His Knights, Robin Hood, Little Pioneers and Indian Stories. Although a native of Canada, she was a graduate of the University of Chicago and taught in connection with the university. Her husband Joseph Parker Warren was a professor of the university. Her fiction has been published by Harper Brothers and she wrote for Woman's Home Companion, Harper's Magazine, the Saturday Evening Post and Collier's.

Review:

The characters are legendary: King Arthur, Lady Guinevere, the wizard Merlin, the sorceress Morgan le Fay, the knights of the Round Table. Their stories are rich in magic and intrigue.

In one adventure, Arthur will lose his life unless he can discover the answer to this riddle: What do women most desire? Arthur asks many people and receives many different answers. Some say that women chiefly desire wealth. Some say beauty. Some say the power to please others. Feeling that none of the answers is right, Arthur searches on. But time is running out. --From the Publisher
