            The White Company: Large Print (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            The story is set in England, France, and Spain, in the years during the Hundred Years' War (1366/67), against the background of the campaign of Edward, the Black Prince to restore Peter of Castile to the throne of the Kingdom of Castile. The climax of the book occurs before the B...attle of Najera. Doyle became inspired to write the novel after attending a lecture on the Middle Ages. The novel is relatively unknown today, though it was very popular up through the Second World War. In fact, Doyle himself regarded this and his other historical novels more highly than the Sherlock Holmes adventures for which he is mainly remembered. The White Company of the title is a free company of archers, led by one of the main characters. The name is taken from a real-life 14th-Century Italian mercenary company, led by John Hawkwood.

            A man wakes up in present-day Alaskan wilderness with no idea who he is, nothing on him save an empty journal with the date 1898 and a mirror. He sees another man hunting nearby, astounded that they look exactly alike except for his own beard. After following this other man home,... he witnesses a wife and child that brings forth a rush of memories of his own wife and child, except he's certain they do not exist in modern times-but from his life in the late 1800s. After recalling his name is Wyatt, he worms his way into his doppelganger Travis Barlow's life. Memories become unearthed the more time he spends, making him believe that he'd been frozen after coming to Alaska during the Gold Rush and that Travis is his great-great grandson. Wyatt is certain gold still exists in the area and finding it with Travis will ingratiate himself to the family, especially with Travis's wife Callie, once Wyatt falls in love. This turns into a dangerous obsession affecting the Barlows and everyone in their small town, since Wyatt can't be tamed until he also discovers the meaning of why he was able to be preserved on ice for over a century. A meditation on love lost and unfulfilled dreams, The Ancestor is a thrilling page-turner in present day Alaska and a historical adventure about the perilous Gold Rush expeditions where prospectors left behind their lives for the promise of hope and a better future. The question remains whether it was all worth the sacrifice... Praise for THE ANCESTOR: Lee Matthew Goldberg is an animal-there is no other way to say it. His prose is heavyweight ambitious, as visceral as a sweaty-toothed dog at your throat. He evokes Robert Louis Stevenson as much as he does a modern thriller novelist. And I'll be honest: I expected a crime novel, but I got a spell-binding epic, an epistolary revelation, a tale as rich as a paying gold mine. The Ancestor is more than a novel. It's an ode to the rich tradition of adventure storytelling...seasoned with ample spice of lov

            The sons of a saga warrior lead a tattered remnant of forest peoples to an unknown destiny. Seth, the leader, daring but calm, ruthless and humane. Woden, his brother, kind and raging, a forest oak. Both of unrelenting grit and valor run the narrow trail of redemption and hope. E...nemy kingdoms will cast their oaths of death, slavery, subjugation, and humiliation until only one side stands. Gathering to themselves their own, the brothers draw a line, in an arid sand of a frontier borderland, which sways on the pendulum of life and death. Little do they know that across the vast plains an unrelenting force of ballistae, catapult, and sword threaten the very existence of their people. Within the heavy stone of the fortress walls, the brothers wait. With traitors around every turn paranoia, murder and resolve dissolves with the knowledge that no quarter will be given. The Empire of Light, the holy and the debauched, the castoffs of foreign lands, compelled by a life force and gathered by the whims of fate, the brothers must now choose to live free, or to die.

            Dickson McCunn, a respectable, newly retired grocer of romantic heart, plans a modest walking holiday in the hills of south-west Scotland. He meets a young English poet and, contrary to his better sense, finds himself in the thick of a plot involving the kidnapping of a Russian p...rincess, who is held prisoner in the rambling mansion, Huntingtower. This modern fairy-tale is also a gripping adventure story, and in it Buchan introduces some of his best-loved characters, including the Gorbals Die-Hards, who reappear in later novels. He also paints a remarkable picture of a man rejuvenated by joining much younger comrades in a challenging and often dangerous fight against tyranny and fear.
