Blood Red Horse

Set in the Crusades, this novel could be used to parallel the Medieval History section of the grade 8 Social Studies curriculum. It is a well written novel with strong themes, conflict, and characterization. The focus on war is effectively offset with the protagonist's beautiful relationship with his horse.
