Meet the Author

Rosemary Sutcliff (1920-1992) wrote dozens of books for young readers, including her award-winning Roman Britain trilogy, The Eagle of the Ninth, The Silver Branch, and The Lantern Bearers, which won the Carnegie Medal. The Eagle of the Ninth is now a major motion picture, The Eagle, directed by Kevin MacDonald and starring Channing Tatum. Born in Surrey, Sutcliff spent her childhood in Malta and on various other naval bases where her father was stationed. At a young age, she contracted Still's Disease, which confined her to a wheelchair for most of her life. Shortly before her death, she was named Commander of the British Empire (CBE) one of Britain's most prestigious honors. She died in West Sussex, England, in 1992.

Rosemary Sutcliff saw the world as a struggle, but well worth the effort. Warrior Scarlet deals with "handicaps", and she personally understood that subject very well. The young man who is trying to earn his "warrior scarlet" has one arm, and he is called on to take on a wolf as a rite of passage. I love Rosemary Sutcliff's work, but I believe this is her best story. Hope you enjoy it half as much as I did.
