Review: In 1346, 12 yr. old Brind, an orphaned kennel boy, raised with hunting dogs at an English manor, accompanies his master, along with half the manor's prized mastiffs, to France, where he must fend for himself when both his master and the dogs are lost at the decisive battle at Crecy. Fast-paced action includes narrow escapes at every turn. Riveting plainspoken writing about the brutality and absurdity of battle. Readers who favor medieval adventures are sure to enjoy.
