Enter an enchanted world of kings and castles, heroes and damsels, fairies and dragons, magicians and giants. This collection thrills with nineteen classic romances – old-fashioned stories of high adventure spun from folk tales and sprinkled with history. These are the timeless tales of brave and steadfast knights, beautiful women, and the trials they share. Accompanied by twenty-three illustrations from renowned illustrator H. J. Ford, the stories include: “Una and the Lion,” “How the Red Cross Knight Slew the Dragon,” “How Don Quixote Was Enchanted,” “How Bradamante Conquered the Wizard,” “The Knight of the Sun,” “Amys and Amyle,” and thirteen more legends, including the unforgettable “The Tale of the Cid.”

Gathered by Andrew Lang, the master collector of folk and fairy tales, these stories have been selected from cultures around the world. Captivating children and adults alike for centuries, the accounts of chivalry and daring in this edition are ready to inspire a new generation.
