Adam of the Road

Finished Adam of the Road by Elizabeth Janet Gray. It won the Newbery Meal in 1943. Set in thirteenth century England it is the story of Adam, whose minstrel father and dog Nick disappear during their travels together. Adam walks from town to town around London in search of these two who he loves best. He has many adventures and in the end is successful in finding them both. While this time period is not my favorite, Gray does a nice job of describing life during medieval England for her readers.
