    A wonderful story for all ages.

    Men of Iron, by Howard Pyle, is an inspirational and moving story of a young boy who grows to manhood against the backdrop of the European feudal system.
    His family having been robbed of their home and lands by an evil Knight, flee to the wilds where young Miles Falworth grows to adolesence. He is eventually taken on as a page by a powerful Lord still friendly to his father. While under the care of this benevolent friend he learns the skills that will take him into the Knighthood.
    As Miles matures, he finds love for the first time. He is also made aware of the terrible injustice perpetrated against his family. As fate would have it, he is given the opportunity to redeem his family name in a rousing finish that you cant help but love.
    I read this book nearly fifty years ago and it still stands out as one of my all time favorites.
    If you are lucky enough to find a copy that has Howard Pyles own illustrations in it, you will be doubly blessed.

    Definition of "review"

    When people want to read reviews to determine whether or not they want to buy a book, they expect to find actual reviews of a book - not a bunch of kids petending they're in a chat room. If you haven't read the book, don't write a review for it. I read the book & I liked it enough to give it 3 stars.
    There are chat rooms for a reason - use them. Don't waste our time writing fake book reviews.

    Awesome Book

    I loved this book. It was the first mid-Evil book that I read. It really got my attention fast. There was never a dull moment. It is just like Charles Dickens 'Great Expectations' where it builds up to the end and when you finish, you wish that it could just keep going.

    Ar reader

    I think this book was a good reflection on the middle ages. It shows how knights like Myles learned the ways of battle and defeated their enemys honorably. I read this book as a historical fiction book for a book report and didn't expect much but it was way better than I first thought.

    I really enjoyed this book

    Men of Iron was a great example of Medieval England and the entire book held a truth about. The author makes you feel as if you were living the life of Miles.

    He muttered something, then shook his head and cleared his throat. "This camp is DEAD." He abruptly stood and turned around, wings whipping through the air. "It's dead and there's nothing left to do." With those last words, his voice trailed in a hoarse whisper.
