Ronald Welch Î 2 Summary

Read Ø The Gauntlet 102 O a bewildering medieval world of chivalry and honor of archery and falconry of grand feasts and castles but most of all of heart pounding jousting tournaments But all these rousing pastimes ominously give way to a rebellion among the Welsh tribes culminating in a fierce assault on the castle fortress and its Norman defenders Surrounded and outnumbered the Normans must. I liked the mechanic for time travel in this book and having recently visited Castle Carreg Cennen I had no trouble imagining the place but found being lead to root for the Normans over the Welsh a bit uncomfortable It was a charming story though and I m glad to have spent time with it

Characters The Gauntlet

Read Ø The Gauntlet 102 Get word of the attack to the nearest castle The only way out is down an immense cliff wall Can Peter make the climb in time A finely authentic picture of life in the 14th century These rousing pastimes give way to ominous rebellion Suddenly besieged in their castle surrounded and outnumbered these Normans are in peril Will Peter now be the only one who can save the day. Having read one of Ronald Welch s other books Knight Crusader I knew what to expect from this book I expected Boys Own knights in shining armour stuff and that is what I gotOriginally released in 1951 and now being re published The Gauntlet is about an old glove or a gauntlet By wearing the magical gauntlet 1950s child Peter Staunton goes back in time to the middle ages where he becomes Peter de Blois son of the owner of Welsh castle Carreg Cennen Being Norman barons in the Welsh heartlands there is a danger that the Welsh could start an uprising and if so then young Peter is sure to be involved in the ensuing battleThe book is uite clever in how it teaches the historical aspects of the situation In the beginning during the 1950s there is the vicar character who is gives lectures on the ruins of Carreg Cennen for example and its history thus getting the messages across Then when Peter ends up in the 14th century after the gauntlet finds him he observes everything going on through his 20th century eyes or with the detached eye of an observer from another age This includes things like Peter learning the longbow and the art of falconry You can see that the author has the passion for the subject which explains why he became a history teacherAll in all then a book that is interesting for its historical teaching cleverly disguised within a piece of fiction and the bringing to life of the real events that happened at the time although some bits are imaginary of course and for the adrenaline rush of the jousting and battle scenes
