Overview

THE TALISMAN is a fictionalized account of Richard the Lion-Heart's crusade. Richard's efforts were undone more by disaffection within his own ranks than by his opponent's success, though Saladin, the Saracen leader, was a commander of genius.

"Scott's intelligent portrayal of this pivotal event is lively and well informed. Richard and Saladin excite admiration, which makes the portrayals historically accurate and sound." (Northeast Reviews)

Walter Scott, later Sir Walter, was a Scottish lawyer who turned to writing. He, more than any other author, made the age of chivalry live for millions of readers with such works as IVANHOE.
