Gaio Publio Varro, veterano delle legioni africane, al termine di una lunga carriera militare torna nella sua terra natale: la Britannia. È l'anno del Signore 369 quando lascia l'esercito romano e decide di riprendere l'attività che fu dei suoi avi: il fabbro. Anni prima, suo nonno, con il ferro estratto da una pietra "caduta dal cielo", aveva creato armi che si conservano affilate e lucenti come nessun altra. Combattente, politico, uomo di grande fascino,Publio Varro affronta mille vicissitudini, giungendo a prosciugare un intero lago per ritrovare quelle pietre misteriose e forgiare una spada leggendaria:Excalibur. Lui ancora non sa che quella spada segnerà il destino di un suodiretto discendente, il futuro re di tutta la Britannia, Artù.

Read information about the author

Ebook La pietra del cielo read Online! Jack Whyte is an author and writer born and raised in Scotland, but has been living in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada since 1967.

Whyte's major work to date is the A Dream of Eagles series (as it is titled in Canada, but known as The Camulod Chronicles in the United States and elsewhere). This series of historical novels presents the tale of King Arthur set against the backdrop of Roman Britain. This retelling of the popular legend eschews the use of magic (as in T. H. White’s The Sword in the Stone) to explain Arthur’s ascent to power and instead relies on the historical condition (with some artistic license) of post-Roman Britain to support the theory that Arthur was meant to counter the anarchy left by the Roman departure from Britain in 410 AD and the subsequent colonization and invasion of Britain by various peoples from Northwestern Europe, including the Saxons, Jutes, Franks, and Angles). Whyte incorporates both traditional Arthurian names, places and events (albeit in gaelic or Latin form) as well as the names of various historical figures that have been suggested as being the possible basis for the original King Arthur legend. The tacit implication is that Whyte's version of history is the true story that has become distorted over time to become the legend and stories of magic that we know today.

Jack Whyte served as the official bard of The Calgary Highlanders and performed several tracks of poetry and song on the 1990 recording by the Regimental Pipes and Drums of The Calgary Highlanders entitled Eighty Years of Glory: The Regimental Pipes, Drums and Bard of The Calgary Highlanders.
