Heroes of the Middle Ages


Read by Kristine Bekere

(3.1 stars; 4 reviews)

"The object of this book is to bring together stories of the most important movements in the history of Europe during the Middle Ages, and to make familiar the names of the most important figures in those scenes. I have endeavoured to weave a tapestry in which, with due colour, may be traced the history of the rise and fall of the various nationalities and the circumstances and mode of life of each—in short, to give the young reader an approximation to the background for the study of his country's history which a wide reading gives to a man." (Summary from the Preface of Heroes of the Middle Ages by Eva March Tappan) (5 hr 4 min)
