2 Reseñas
El Cid is the best soldier in Castile. When he is unfairly banished from court, the Spanish hero sets off on a campaign against the Moorish invaders of Southern Spain to win back favour. After many battles and conquests, El Cid is forgiven. But he comes home to face one last terrible battle and, ultimately, his death.

A retelling of the life of Ruy Diaz de Vivar, who died about 1100 C.E., based on various poems and stories. Like Robin Hood and William Tell, his exploits in literature are no doubt greater than they were in reality. I have not read the book. Leer reseña completa
