SYNOPSIS: A nicely-illustrated version of the classic adventure tale in the days of England's Henry IV. In seeking to avenge his unjustly accused father, young Myles Falworth is knighted and wins the friendship of King Henry IV.
The year 1400 opened with more than usual peacefulness in England. Only a few months before, Richard ii-weak, wicked, and treacherous-had been dethroned, and Henry iv declared King in his stead. But it was only a seeming peacefulness, lasting but for a little while; for though King Henry proved himself a just and a merciful man-as justice and mercy went with the men of iron of those days-and though he did not care to shed blood needlessly, there were many noble families who had been benefited by King Richard during his reign, and who had lost somewhat of their power and prestige from the coming in of the new King. (excerpt from "Men of Iron"). 136 pages
CONDITION: Ex-School book. Pages are in very good condition except a few pages has some writing. The cover does show some wear and has a bend in the corner as shown in the photo. Still, a very nice vintage book to read.
