A Legend: Following in the Footsteps of King Arthur by Andrew Beattie

When I was a high school junior, my English class read The Idylls of the King, beginning my love for stories about King Arthur.  I went on to adore T.H. White’s The Once and Future King, The Mists of Avalon by Marian Zimmer Bradley and Mary Stewart’s Merlin series.  So, seeing this book on NetGalley, I felt eager to read it.

This title is history, not fiction.  It is divided into sections on King Arthur as a legend, the places associated with him and finally a gazetteer of Arthurian sights.  There are also a bibliography and suggestions for further reading.

This title provides perspective on the legendary king and takes readers to the locales associated with him.  Though there may never have been the Arthur who was idolized, what he stood for and symbolized remains strongly with us to this day.  For readers who would like to go where Arthur reportedly went, I recommend this title.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
