Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village

Written by Laura Amy Schlitz and Illustrated by Robert Byrd

Go back in time to an English village in 1266, where an interesting array of characters live and work together. Meet Hugo, the lord's nephew on a quest to prove his manhood by killing a wild boar; Nelly, who supports her family selling live eels; Jack, the compassionate half-wit; Alice, the singing shepherdess, and many more. The 22 vignettes capture the essence of medieval life.
