The Best of Rosemary Sutcliff (London: Chancellor Press, 1987) was a compilation of three books:
- Warrior Scarlet, originally published by Oxford University Press in 1958.
- The Mark of the Horse Lord, originally published by Oxford University Press in 1965.
- Knight’s Fee, originally published by Oxford University Press in 1960
These are three of Rosemary Sutcliff’s most acclaimed works. Warrior Scarlet is set in Bronze Age Britain. It is the story of Drem, a boy with a withered arm, who dreams of slaying a wolf and earning his place amongst the warriors of the tribe. The Mark Of The Horse Lord is a darker story, of revenge. Knight’s Fee tells the story of the boy dog handler Randal, who rises from this low position through a mixture of fate and his own abilities and character.
