Publisher Description

In the days of chivalry, when men were made of iron, young Myles Falworth, a lord’s son, is forced to make his own fortune when his father is unjustly disgraced for treason. How he enters the service of a powerful lord, rises to knighthood, defeats his father’s old enemy in thrilling combat, and at last wins the friendship of the king is told against the background of the dangerous times of fourteenth-century England.

Master storyteller Howard Pyle is at his best, incorporating fascinating historical information about medieval life into this fast-moving and entertaining story of a boy’s fight to restore his family’s rights and good name. This classic story remains a favorite not only among young readers but also among educators because of the author’s effortless way of teaching virtues such as courage, loyalty, steadfastness, and generosity.

"The story of two teens in medieval England as they grow into manhood and become knights. Great story, and well drawn characters. I loved this book as a kid and enjoyed it just as much as an adult. Much better than Pyles Adventures of Robin Hood which is honestly, a struggle to read. "

    " Hard to put this into 'stars'. Written, and better suited, for the younger minds of impressionable boys with a good 'ole' style 'righteous' vs. 'wicked' with heroes. For adults, just be young again. "

    " You really need to read the unabridged edition. There is another one that was watered down to be easier to understand. Don't read that one! This would make a great movie. It reminds me of a cross between A Knights Tale (movie) and The Hedge Knight (book). "

    " Juvenile classic about 15th century English knights. The young hero is strong, brave, handsome, and annoyingly unwilling to compromise.I enjoyed the book as a period piece and an influence of its time. "
