By Sir A. Conan Doyle
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is best known as the creator of Sherlock Holmes. But his favorite of all his books was this sweeping historical adventure set in the Middle Ages. When young Alleyne Edricson sets out into the world he has no idea of the exciting adventures he will have. It is 1366 and England is at war with Spain. Alleyne becomes a squire to Sir Nigel Loring and journeys to France to join the White Company, a bold band of archers. On the way, he is involved in jousts, a skirmish with vicious pirates, a daring rescue from a besieged castle, and a fierce battle in which Alleyne risks death to save Sir Nigel and the Company from defeat. Written by one of the world's most beloved authors and illustrated by one of our most distinguished artists, The White Company brings to life a medieval world of chivalry and stirring adventures that will delight readers of all ages.
