- Author BiographyRobert M. Johnson has had a lifelong love of medieval history. For eleven years he lived in a medieval monastery in France. Some of the buildings of that monastery were first built in the year 1133 A.D. and reflected the solid stone construction of the period. His life as a monk deepened his awareness of life in the Middle Ages, the attitudes, the social structure, the daily life of peasants and noblemen who were part of that exciting time. Living close to the cycles of nature, the seasons of planting and harvesting, set the tone for life in the medieval village. This is the third volume that features young Will Burton, an English archer swept up into the thrilling times of feudal Europe. After the battle of Poitiers which was a decisive English victory, young Will and his comrades, Jack Singletary, Chris Colley and John Wegland challenged the renegade nobleman, Renald LeClerq. They took over his castle of Malfleur and under the leadership of young Will they began a new life in Normandy. In this present volume, Lord William Burton is reunited with his family, and in particular, with his brother Thomas who has become a master archer, bowyer and arrowsmith. His fascinating story is woven together with that of his brother, as they establish a new dynasty in Normandy, France. The Epic of the Archer moves on.
