There is a mystery woven into Big John’s young life that he must solve. Raised an orphan in a rude peasant village during the strife-filled reign of King John of England, John understands that injustice has been done his family. One day he must reclaim his name and family honor by avenging his unknown father! John’s unusual size and strength earn him a place as page to an earl organizing the 5th Crusade. In the Holy Land John searches for a father he hopes is living still. Amidst battle, capture, and setbacks, John encounters Francis of Assisi, who had come to the Holy Land to preach the Gospel to the Saracens. As John perseveres, Francis helps to bring about the final outcome. Illustrated by Frederick T. Chapman.
