It is a general popular error to suppose the loudest complainers for the public to be the most anxious for its welfare. — Edmund Burke

Ivanhoe Told to the Children - Ethel Lindsay



Sir Walter Scott's Ivanhoe is set in 12th century England, during the Reign of Richard I, when Saxons and Normans were still at odds, and feudal customs still in force. This children's version is short and easily read, but it well preserves the romance, mystery, excitement and chivalric heroism of the beloved original. The story tells of a disinherited Saxon knight, and hero of the crusades, who helps to bring Saxon and Norman together as one people.
