The Black Arrow

The Black Arrow by Robert Louis Stevenson

Action and adventure during the War of the Roses.

Young Dick Shelton finds himself in the middle of intrigue, from his father's murder, to a prisoner his guardian is bringing to his hall, to the wars about him.

It involves a pursuit through the woods, the title black arrows being used to threat murderers, an attempt to mislead him with oaths, disguising himself a monk, winning and losing favor, an interrupted wedding, and more.
