Stylish reissue of a multi-award-winning, dramatic tale of the Peasants' Revolt. The narrator of this unforgettable tale is an old hunting dog. Living with the lowly Rufus and Comfort and their children, she has all a dog could ask for - fire, bed and bone. But this is 1381 and unrest is spreading like plague among the peasants of southern England, who are tired of the hardship and injustice they suffer at the hands of oppressive landlords. Rebellion is in the air, stirred up by men like John Ball and Wat Tyler, and life for man - and dog - is about to change dramatically...
Branford's skilfull handling results in a thoroughly convincing and totally engrossing novel. A strong and deserving contender for the Carnegie medal. * The Sunday Telegraph * Both I and a 13-year-old tester were lost in admiration for the brilliantly devised Fire, Bed and Bone. * The Times *
