    This is a story of the days of chivalry in England and of young Myles Falworth, son of a lord unjustly disgraced for treason, who was forced to make his fortune as best he might in the days when men seemed made of iron. How he entered the service of a powerful lord, rose to knighthood, defeated his father's old enemy in thrilling combat, and at last won the friendship of the king is told against a background of the dangerous times of the 14th century that makes them live again.

    Alan Rither says: "A great story for younger listeners"

    Overall

    This is a book about a 15-year old boy who becomes a squire and, eventually, a knight. It was exciting to see him grow and mature. The vocabulary was a bit advanced for the modern teenager. However they can identify with the struggles that the hero goes through with hazing by older boys, secret hideaways with his friends, chaste romance with a young lady who is the daughter of the Earl, who is far above his "station" in life. Throughout the story, the young man behaves honorably and it shows how godly character is rewarded despite great struggles. I would recommend it as a stepping stone for those readers who will go on to more mature stories of knights and ladies.
