Trumpeter of Krakow

By Eric P. Kelly

For two hundred years the Charnetski family has guarded Poland's most famous jewel. When the czar of Russia finds out about the valuable crystal, he sends men to steal it before the Charnetskis can get it to the king of Poland. Adventure, mystery, and self-sacrifice fill this medieval story set in Krakow.
