Warrior Scarlet (Little Yellow Study Guides)

Set in Britain in the Bronze Age (about 900 B.C.) this novel by Rosemary Sutcliff tells the coming-of-age story of a young man by the name of Drem. Though his spear arm is badly crippled, Drem must single-handedly kill a wolf to establish his manhood and earn the right to wear the bright scarlet of a true warrior. Will he overcome his handicap? Or will he be exiled from his community and be forced to live with the "half people" - the outcast shepherds living high up in the hills? 207 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel P.
