England is in turmoil-torn by civil war between the Normans and Saxons. Prince John plots to crown himself king during King Richard's absence while fighting the crusades. But when Richard returns he will need a courageous and able warrior at his side-a warrior like Wilfred of Ivanhoe. Disinherited by his father, disowned and dishonored, Wilfred faces many things while aiding Richard against John's plot: deadly tournaments, wounding, captivity, true love-and most importantly, redemption. Recommended for grade 12. 1988, Bantam Classics. 4.25 x 6.75 inches. Soft cover. 448 pp.
