About The Book
In the tradition of Mark Twain’s A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court and Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Mars novels, medievalist Stanley Lombardo’s Paxton at Bosworth Field delivers a tale of high adventure and romance across Space and Time. Pursued by an Apache war party, Carter Paxton rides through a medicine cave in Arizona and emerges in medieval England. His survival tools include not only his Sharps buffalo rifle and a pair of Colt revolvers, but — more importantly — three books that will change the course of history. Upon arriving, Paxton rescues a lone hunter and learns that he is none other than Richard III, who in no way resembles Shakespeare’s hunchbacked monster. Beset by enemies, Richard welcomes the aid of this mysterious stranger — while the King’s niece, the beautiful Lady Joanna, welcomes her handsome new suitor. When Joanna discovers the copy of Shakespeare’s plays that Paxton has brought with him, he reveals to her his past and his determination to help Richard win the crucial Battle of Bosworth Field. With Bosworth mere months away, and limited to the materials and techniques of the time, Paxton and Joanna strive to bring nineteenth-century technology to the fifteenth century. Assisting their efforts are Master Printer William Caxton, former soldier of fortune Brother Tranquillus, and scholarly warrior Anthony, Earl Rivers. But will their help be sufficient — and timely enough — as the insidious and arrogant Bishop Morton, Duke of Buckingham, and Lord Stanley plot to bring the rapacious Pretender Henry Tudor to the throne? With the discovery of King Richard III’s remains, modern defenders of the White Boar are rallying to PAXTON AT BOSWORTH FIELD as a glorious glimpse of what might have been if Fate had been kind and brought the right kind ot help to Richard in his time of need.
