KIRKUS REVIEW

An increasingly popular writer of young fiction set in different periods of historical England (see The Armorer's House, Oxford, 1952), Rosemary Sutcliff knows her background as she writes the adventures of a group of strolling players during Elizabeth's reign. And she creates a warm, hearty suspense as Hugh Copplestone, a Cornwall boy, joins the players and searches for his fortune. Ousted by a cruel aunt, Hugh and his deerhound Argos join the actors- Tobias, Jasper, Nicholas and Jonathan- and theirs is an exciting way from town to town, before Hugh meets Anthony Heritage, the man who had helped his father through Oxford and who now gives Hugh the chance for an education.
