These tales are the 'precious stones set in a Silver sea' of English history. And Robert Lacey is a master historian ~~ one of the best Britain has to offer civiliazation today. Each tale is told simply with enthusiasm in a style that is 'Anglo-Saxon' ~ simple, clear & precise. A pleasant book & one I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for the footnotes to the historical events of England's Middle Ages.
Do not order the Nook version of this book; you'll get a totally different book, albeit by the same author! I brought this to B&N's attention, but after more than a year, it's still not corrected.
