Front Cover
Dover Publications, Jan 1, 1968 - Juvenile Fiction - 328 pages
The stories of these three knights are among the most colorful and enduring in the vast body of Arthurian legend. The love-story of Tristram and the beautiful Isoult, of King Mark and of magic potions; the wondrous legend of Launcelot's emergence from the castle of the Lady of the Lake and the deeds that made him the chiefest glory of the Round Table; Percival's championships of the Lady Yvette and his adventures at the Castle of Beaurepaire -- these are all retold in Pyle's inimitable style, capturing perfectly the tone and spirit of ancient romance.
