Product Description:

It's easy to take a trip back in time with this story-like book full of gorgeously illustrated knights and castles! Reprinted from a 1957 children's book, this title by Jack Coggins explores the fact and fiction surrounding medieval knights, what life was like during medieval times, medieval weapons and suits of armor, how castles were used as defenses and how they were attacked, the battles and crusades that the knights fought in, tournaments, hunting, the knight's code of honor, and much more. The text is large and easy-to-read, and the illustrations (by the author) are full of detail and drama. In true retro fashion, pages alternate between full-color illustrations and black-and-white illustrations. Because it reads more like a story than a "topic book" which has been picked apart and over-organized, readers can wander though the book and enjoy the whole history and lifestyle of medieval knights that is offered. 105 pages, pb. - Jess
