About the Book

A rich and engrossing thread of Romance runs through this tale of the motherless son of a valiant robber baron of Medieval Germany.

Young Otto, born into a warring household in an age when lawless chiefs were constantly fighting each other or despoiling the caravans of the merchant burghers, is raised in a monastery only to return to his family’s domain and become painfully involved in the blood feud between his father and the rival house of Trutz-Drachen.

The narrative is told with Howard Pyle’s consummate skill and illustrated with some of the most enchanting sketches ever done for a book of this type.

Like the same author’s version of The Story of King Arthur and His Knights and his collection of original stories known as The Wonder Clock, this book has become a legend, a modern story with the feel and sound of an ancient tale. It is a reading adventure that youngsters will not soon forget.
