Crusader: By Horse to Jerusalem

Crusader: By Horse to Jerusalem Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nearly 900 years ago, Duke Godfrey de Bouillon set out on the First Crusade--and in our own time, author Tim Severin retraced his steps. The destination: Jerusalem, city of gold. For more than eight years, Severin followed the historic trail, riding through northern Europe's green countryside and into the heat of the Near East. In the process, he covered more than 2,500 miles by horse, past ruined Crusader settlements and ancient battlefields, over arduous mountain passes, and across Anatolian steppes. A dazzling synthesis of adventure, practical history, and exploration, told by one of our finest and most respected travel writers--illustrated with his own photographs.

Synopsis:

Retracing the steps of the earliest Crusaders, Tim Severin travels by horseback on an eight and a half month, 2500 mile journey from the green pastures of northern Europe into the heat and parched landscape of the Near East, following the precise route medieval voyagers took towards Jerusalem.
