Publisher's Summary

Hedyn held an old sheet iron helmet and a mail tunic up in the starlight to see them better. The breast of the mail bore a ragged hole. The mail was sticky. It took a moment for Hedyn to realize it was soaked in drying blood.

"A bascinet and hauberk?" he asked.

"Aye, you shall need these before the night is done."

Eager to see the world that lies beyond his small Cornish village, young Hedyn, son of an archer and serf, is thrilled to be chosen to join King Henry's army as it advances on Normandy. His excitement quickly gives way to exhaustion in body and spirit, as well as worry for the safety of his newfound friends and comrades. Treachery, disease, hunger, and death plague their steps as King Henry's men near their fateful battle with the French army at Agincourt. Can a mysterious stranger with a secretive past offer Hedyn hope amidst the horrors of battle?

    "The beauty is in the details!"
    What did you love best about The Archer's Son?

    While being entertained by an engaging coming-of-age tale, the reader's experience is enhanced by the subtle, well-researched details of material culture, social structure, arms & armor, military tactics, etc., which all work together to offer a window to the 15th century.


    Any additional comments?

    This is an entertaining story for all ages - as an adult I thoroughly enjoyed it - but I believe that it is a particularly good selection for young adults with an interest in history. Better yet, it is a fine book to cultivate that interest in young adults who love a good story.. and may not yet realize that they are fascinated by history!
