Summary
"Burlesque of the historical romance. A Yankee of the most arrant modern type is plumped down in the middle of King Arthur's England. The serious purpose, which is not obtruded, is to strip off the glamour and tinsel of chivalry...and show the evils...that actually underlay it." Baker. Guide to the Best Fic
