Sinopsis:

The mysterious Song of Camlon tells of a mighty warrior who will win the crown of Cambria. This is Arthur's great destiny-or so prophesies Merdin the seer.

To claim his birthright, the simple Welsh rustic must overcome the tyrant Vortigern, his brilliant son Modred, and the other formidable foes arrayed against him. Is Fate the architect of Arthur's success, or is his rise to power determined by the strength of his sword arm and the shrewdness of his advisors? The naive young warrior must learn much about his enemies, both open and secret, and the prophecies that so rule his life before he can step from the pages of dark history into glorious legend.

The Pagan King, first published in 1959 and long out of print, is one of the first modern novels to rediscover the Arthurian legend's Welsh roots. In Edison Marshall's splendid retelling, readers will share the agonizing losses and thrilling victories of one of the world's greatest heroes.

About the Author:

Edison Marshall (1894-1967) was born in Indiana and as a teenager moved to Oregon. He studied at the University of Oregon before joining the U.S. Army in 1916 and attaining the rank of second lieutenant. After his marriage in 1920, he settled in the Augusta area of Georgia. Because of his avid interest in hunting and outdoor life, he travelled widely throughout the world, and his experiences provided source material for may of his short stories and novels. Most are historical novels, and several were made into films. Among the most successful were YANKEE PASHA (1947), THE VIKING (1951), THE CONQUEROR (1962), and THE LOST COLONY (1964). He once observed, "I write precisely what I want to write with no thought of audience. My first obligation is to tell an exciting story, and if I can instruct and inspire as well, all to the good."
