From author Rosemary Sutcliff, author of the classic tale The Eagle of the Ninth, comes Outcast , the tale of an orphan boy in the ancient world.
When a Roman ship is wrecked off the coast of Britain, an infant, Beric, is the only survivor, saved by members of a British tribe. They name him Beric and bring him up among them, until the time comes when they can ignore his ancestry no longer. Then Beric is cast out from the only home he has ever known and forced to find his one place in a treacherous world.
With illustrations by Richard Kennedy, Outcast is sure to delight middle grade lovers of historical adventure.
"Rosemary Sutcliff's superb historical imagination never fails." -- The New York Herald Tribune
