Castle. The word itself conjures up mystery, romance, intrigue, and grandeur. In the 13th century, when England was attempting to conquer Wales, the English built impressive fortresses with adjoining towns. In the long run, these towns proved to be more effective in bringing about the desired conquest than the castles themselves. With typical zest and a wry sense of humor punctuating his drawings, David Macaulay traces the step-by-step planning and construction of both castle and town.

    Gervaise Tresham joins the Order of the Knights of St. John and proceeds to the stronghold of Rhodes. Afterwards, he's made a Knight of the White Cross for valor, and then a commander of a war-galley! He participates in many skirmishes, but during one of his cruises he's attacked, captured, and sold into slavery in Tripoli. He succeeds in escaping, however, and returns to Rhodes in time to take part in the defense of the fortress. 426 pages, softcover.

      Three boys in the White Knights Club take on the challenge in their day-to-day lives, just like the knights of King Arthur's court, to prove their faith by their works-protecting "damsels in distress," defending the weak, and honoring their God and King. This story challenges boys to live chivalrously-in their homes, neighborhoods, and communities. 200 pages, hardcover.

          Although the date of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is uncertain, and we know nothing about the author, its composition is roughly contemporary with Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales in the latter part of the fourteenth century. It is a remarkably subtle and accomplished poem, in whihc the hero's knightly virtures of courage, courtesy and fidelity are put to the test in a strange adventure involving a huge green knight on a green horse, a winter journey, a lady in a mysterious castle and a challenge answered. It ranks as one of the greatest works of the English Middle Ages and perhaps the greatest triumph of the English alliterative tradition.
