As he slips it on to his hand he is transported back to the fourteenth century, to a time when his Norman ancestors held the castle.Accepted as the eldest son of Sir Roger de Blois, Peter learns how to hawk, fight, and shoot a longbow but when a rebellion arises, it's up to Peter to escape from the besieged castle and fetch help.Ronald Welch is celebrated as one of the best writers of historical fiction for children and this thrilling story has been captivating readers for many years with its combination of fast-paced adventure and authentic historical detail. This edition also features the original black and whiteillustrations which bring the story and the era vividly to life.
