Ivanhoe brings alive 12th-century England and its people: Ivanhoe, the disinherited knight, his fair lady, Rowena, Richard the Lion Hearted and Robin Hood. Through them the past of England comes alive--a past of crusades, chivalry and courtly love.

Ivanhoe is a rollicking tale of the Saxons and Normans at the time of King John. It is primarily about a secret homecoming from the Crusades but is replete with love, hate, jousts, feasts, racism, robbery, sacrifice, and history. It's beautifully written, easy to read, and matchless overall.
