on the Trail of the Real St George

Dragon-slayer, English hero, martyr, warrior, soldier and saint — St George has been all these things. But who was the real St George?

This fascinating book draws on the most recent academic research into folklore and legends to put together an accurate account of St George’s original life story, and how he has developed in folklore and legend to become what he is today.
