In this enchanting version of the story of King Arthur, the renowned American illustrator and storyteller Howard Pyle displays his unique talent for capturing and stimulating the imagination of the young. Inventively retold and vividly illustrated, these stories describe the perilous and thrilling adventures of King Arthur and his knights in that glorious age of chivalry and honour. After showing how Arthur established his right to the throne by drawing the sword from the anvil, the author then relates the story of Arthur`s battle with the Sable Knight and his securing the sword Excalibur. He tells of Arthur`s confrontations with the Duke of North Umber and Sir Pellias, describes King Arthur`s wooing and wedding the Lady Guinevere, and tells of the establishment of the Round Table. Tales are told, too, of Arthur`s knights, including Sir Pellias or the Gentle Knight and of course, Sir Gawaine.
