A TALE OF THE TWO ROSES
Stevenson’s second novel is both an historical adventure and a romance. It first appeared as a serial in 1883 with the subtitle “A Tale of Tunstall Forest” beginning in Young Folks, and was printed under the pseudonymn Captain George North.
The Black Arrow tells the story of Dick Shelton during the Wars of the Roses and how he becomes a knight, rescues his lady Joanna Sedley, and obtains justice for the murder of his father, Sir Harry Shelton.
