Publisher's Summary

Bring history back to life through Jim Hodges' historically accurate, exciting, and edifying audio recordings.

Mr. Henty weaves a story of the life and times of King Richard the Lion-hearted that is yet to be equaled. Cuthbert de Lance, the hero of the story, is of Norman blood on his father's side and Saxon by his mother. By providing timely aid to the Earl of Evesham, Cuthbert is rewarded by being allowed to go to the Crusade as his page. He gains a reputation for valor and prowess due to gallant deeds, and his resourcefulness not only helps King Richard but aids Cuthbert in many a 'hairbreadth escape'.

The Henty Historical Novel Collection, written by George Henty in the 1800s, covers many time periods in history throughout the world. In this collection, you will learn history, geography, and vocabulary while also discovering hero characters for your children to emulate.

Captivating and thoroughly enjoyable!<br />

This was an excellent purchase and was well worth the time spent listening to it! The audio recording was not quite as good as another version I have by this author, yet it is still very good!

I got through it.

My main problem with this and the three other audiobooks I bought from this company was he reader. He overemphasizes every other word as though he were reading to a toddler. He didn't research the actual pronunciation of the words he was going to read. That's not unusual, but most people can pronounce &quot;diet&quot;, &quot;comparison&quot; and &quot;copious&quot;.
