9780140863697: King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table

From the birth of the King to the Last Battle at Camlann, the immortal legend of Arthur is packed with thrilling clashes between the forces of good and the legions of darkness. Though some of these stories have existed for hundreds of years, Terrence Hardiman's presentation shows that they still enthrall us today.

From the Inside Flap:

Retold out of the old romances, this collection of Arthurian tales endeavors to make each adventure--"The Quest for the Round Table, " "The First Quest of Sir Lancelot, " "How the Holy Grail Came to Camelot, " and so forth--part of a fixed pattern that effectively presents the whole story, as it does in Le Morte D'Arthur, but in a way less intimidating to young readers.
