In Raising Sir Gallant, an act of kindness from the past induces a renowned knight to visit Bristol, England, where he offers to tutor Gallant, the son of a farmer. Designed for boys aged 8 to 12, this book encourages readers to walk alongside Gallant as he applies his newfound knight training toward overcoming a dark secret that has haunted his young life.
More than an engaging story of virtue tinged by regret; our tale is a history lesson of early 16th century England, spanning from a typical commoner’s home to the famous Thornbury Castle. By exploring the foods, clothing, work and pastimes of the people, the young readers benefit from a rare glimpse into the rustic life of the late Middle Ages – at a time when faith was cherished and strangers shared what little they had.
