A TALE of post-Charlemagne France, where anarchy was the rule about 950 A.D. The hero is a wandering Irish minstrel. He not only carries a harp, he is a Harp, and his adventures are lively, bloody, and continuous. If you wish to convince yourself that the world is a better place today than it was a thousand years ago, you may get comfort as well as amusement from this book.
