Description

?Otto of the Silver Hand has audience appeal for fans of the Arthurian legends....Geoffrey Howard's crisp diction and nuanced characterizations enhance this classic story....a worthy addition to any audiobook collection seeking lesser-known classics in children's literature.??School Library Journal

?This tale that I am about to tell is of a little boy who lived and suffered in those dark middle ages; of how he saw both the good and the bad of men, and of how, by gentleness and love and not by strife and hatred, he came at last to stand above other men and to be looked up to by all.??from the book

Young Otto is born into a warring household in a lawless age. Having no mother, he is sent by his father, a valiant robber baron, to be safely raised by monks until the age of twelve. But when he returns, gentle Otto can no longer escape the bitter blood feud between his father and the rival house of Trutz-Drachen. He is kidnapped by the rival family and his hand is cut off, to be replaced forever by a silver one. Can his brave father and his captor?s kind daughter, Pauline, help him escape?
