Summary
"It is May 1460, five years into the War of the Roses, and England is in turmoil. As battles rage throughout the Suffolk countryside, Dick Shelton, a ward of the ruthless Sir Daniel Brockley, discovers his guardian was responsible for his father's murder. He flees to join the Black Arrows, a group of outlaws determined to revenge the wrongs of Brockley and his men. But Shelton has fallen in love with a young heiress, taken in by Brockley for her fortune, and must attempt to save her. First published as a serial in 1883, The Black Arrow is a historical tale of adventure, romance and suspense." "In his introduction, John Sutherland examines the historical setting of The Black Arrow and discusses the novel in the context of Stevenson's writing. This new edition includes extensive notes, a glossary, suggested further reading, a chronology of Stevenson's life and a note on the geography of the work."--BOOK JACKET
