An excellent and vivid history novel for kids.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Gauntlet (Oxford Children's Modern Classics) (Paperback)
I read this book first around 37 years ago (when I was 8. I still remember it vividly as an exciting book for children but with enough accurate history and detail that older readers would find it interesting.
What's such a shame is that Welch's even better book - Knight Crusader - is now out of print and impossible to find. That had an immense amount of historical detail and a gripping narrative.
