King Arthur and His Knights

14.99

King Arthur and His Knights. Written by Howard Pyle. Read by David Thorn. Length: 11 hrs and 30 mins. Suggested ages: 9 and up.

Description: Howard Pyle (who also wrote The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood) weaves the tales of chivalrous Knights, the magic sword of Excalibur, the Magician Merlin the Wise, and the legendary Arthur, later to become King of Britain. Pyle describes bouts of jousting, and knightly jealousies played out in grand style. Even in our present day, these stories last and challenge us to be our best, truthful, brave, and always wanting to right wrongs to those who cannot speak up for themselves.
