King Arthur and His Knights by Maude Radford Warren [11] ONCE upon a time, a thousand years before Columbus discovered America, and when Rome was still the greatest city in the world, there lived a brave and beautiful youth whose name was Arthur. His home was in England, near London; and he lived with the good knight Sir Hector, whom he always called father. They dwelt in a great square castle of gray stone, with a round tower at each corner. It was built about a courtyard, and was surrounded by a moat, across which was a drawbridge that could be raised or lowered. When it was raised the castle was practically a little island and very hard for enemies to attack. [12] On one side of the moat was a large wood, and here Arthur spent a great deal of his time.

Beagle’s book The Last Unicorn, Viking, New York, 1968 NARRATOR 1: All that Schmendrick the Magician later remembered of his wild ride with the outlaws—riding, as he was, face down across a saddlebow—was the wind, the saddle’s edge, and the laughter of the jingling giant who held the reins.
