The Black Arrow
fullDescription

In this swashbuckling novel set in fifteenth-century England, young Richard Shelton discovers that he has been betrayed by the guardian who raised him—a man involved in the murder of his father. Seventeen-year-old Richard joins the fellowship of the Black Arrow to avenge the death, rescue the woman he loves, and participate in the struggle between the Yorks and Lancasters in the War of the Roses.

Though history records two sides fighting for control of England, The Black Arrow presents a third side: the exploited commoners joined together by their black-arrow weaponry. To survive the war, Richard must rely on his cunning. Through adventures in castles, villages, forests, and aboard a ship, Richard outfoxes captors, bargains his way out of crises, and ultimately proves himself worthy of knighthood.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: THE BLACK ARROW is possibly the least well known of Robert Louis Stevenson's adventure novels. Set in fifteenth-century England during the War of the Roses, it follows 17-year-old Richard Shelton as he seeks to avenge his father's murder and rescue his ladylove. These days, sixth-graders might have difficulty comprehending Stevenson's period prose without assistance. Narrator Ron Keith is more than up to the task. As a homicidal priest, an assortment of barbarous pirates, and Richard's own devious legal guardian, Keith makes every moment sizzle. His excellent accents, stylish characterizations, and vocal panache keep the listener spellbound. As young Richard discovers betrayal, friendship, and love, Keith's performance offers an entertaining way for a new audience to understand and enjoy this old gem. S.J.H.
