If you enjoyed this book then you may also enjoy "Kidnapped" aka "The Lad with The Silver Butten" also written by Robert Louis Stevenson. I'm almost done with "The Black Arrow" and so far I agree whole heartedly. It's the best medival advanture I know of. The best thing, in my opinon, is that Joanna and Dick are not just in love but they are friends. I also love the fact the Joanna is not the typical weak maiden needing to be saved. She is smart and strong. I'm soo glad I've seen someone who is as excited as I am about this book.
