There's no light on Earth that shines brighter than the truth. From the mystery schools of Egypt, Chaldea, Persia and India, there has been carried through the ages a gnosis, grounded in nature and informed by the high ideals of service to humanity.

The book details the early adventures of Sir Launcelot, Sir Tristram, and Sir Percival. It is frought with adventure, chivalry, and Pyle's own version of Old English to go with it. Highly recommended for those interested in tales of the Round Table.
