A rousing tale told in magnificent style, G. A. Henty's story of medieval life follows the remarkable adventures of young Cuthbert de Lance, a lad who serves as a page to an English nobleman during the Third Crusade. Readers have a ringside seat at a major historical event as they follow the boy to the Holy Land, experience the excitement of battle, and share Cuthbert's dangerous exploits on his return trip across Europe to England.
Henty was known for his historical accuracy, and this volume reinforced his reputation; once again, he places his young characters in critical periods of history. Masterfully blending fact with fiction, Henty produced more than 140 books and achieved a reputation as the "Prince of Storytellers." His popular novels continue to ignite youthful imaginations with thrilling tales of reckless courage set in bygone days.
