Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A welcome addition to the popular series." School Library Journal.
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Crisp photographs of art and artifacts from Europe's Middle Ages highlight "Eyewitness Book" overviews of the feudal system from a castle's construction and life. The two-page "displays" are annotated views that include, the manor's lady and lord, Crusaders, and Japan's samurai; in the second, French, Spanish, German, and Japanese fortress homes, medieval livestock-quite different from today's, and carpenters' and cooks' equipment. Knight's a perfect companion book offers descriptions of the warriors, their fighting techniques and flexible fashions- from functional chain mail to decorative body armor.
