William of Normandy embodied the reckless, adventuresome spirit of his Viking ancestors. Having established a firm rule over his domain in the northwestern coast of France, he looked across the English Channel with longing eyes to the kingdom of England and determined to add this jewel to his realm. Join William and his Norman army as they embark on the adventure of a lifetime—the conquest of England. Through this fascinating life story, biographer Jacob Abbott shows how the very traits that brought this great leader to power—pride and ambition—brought him to a bitter end. 212 pages. Gr. 7–12.
See also our other books in the Abbott Series, classic biographies with lessons from “history makers” carefully woven into the fabric of a thrilling life story. These books that seek to portray the character of their subjects accurately are designed for personal benefit and also recommended for book reports.
