The heroes of whom Rosemary Sutcliff writes in this book are Caratacus, Arthur, Alfred, Hereward, Llewellin, Robin Hood, William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, Owen Glyndwr and Montrose. These are the figures, in England, Scotland and Wales, whose lives still have a national and legendary vitality ... Before Homer ever wrote, the Hero stood for a fundamental human need. That is why Rosemary Sutcliff's book is important besides being supremely good reading."
