Description
"The Talisman" is a novel by Sir Walter Scott. It was published in 1825 as the second of his "Tales of the Crusaders", the first being "The Betrothed". "The Talisman" takes place at the end of the Third Crusade, mostly in the camp of the Crusaders in Palestine. Scheming and partisan politics, as well as the illness of King Richard the Lionheart, are placing the Crusade in danger. The main characters are the Scottish knight Kenneth, who is a fictional character version of David of Scotland, Earl of Huntingdon, who did in fact return from the third Crusade in 1190, Richard the Lionheart, Saladin, and Edith Plantagenet, a relative of Richard.

display_description This book contains Sir Walter Scott's 1825 novel, "The Talisman". It is the second novel in Scott's "Tales of the Crusaders" series (itself a subset of the Waverly novels) and a sequel to "The Betrothed". Political intrigue and scheming is threatening to bring the Third Crusade to a end as King Richard the Lionheart's health deteriorates at an ever-increasing rate. Brimming with betrayal, redemption, and double-crossing, "The Talisman" constitutes a must-read for fans of historical fiction and is not to be missed by aficionados of Scott's seminal work. Contents include: "Sir Walter Scott", "Introduction to The Talisman", "Appendix to Introduction", "Tales of the Crusaders. Tale II.- The Talisman", "Chapter I", "Chapter II", "Chapter III", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this had been becoming increasingly rare or expensive. This volume is now republished in an available, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
