A Land Apart - Betrayal The story is set in Northumberland, and begins in 1305. Sir Walter Radulf, a knight of the realm resides with his wife Agnes and two sons, Walter (Walt), the eldest, and William, at his manor in Syhale. He also owns land at Bytilsden in the North West, closer to the border with Scotland. Due to the proximity of the Bytilsden land to the border and the lack of suitably defendable accommodation, he chooses to remain at Syhale, where his manor is not fortified, but is a greater distance from the border, offering escape to the security of Tynemouth castle, or Newcastle when threatened by serious invasion. Small incursions by invading plunderers or border reivers, he can fight off using his own troop of militia. Sir Walter's long term aim is to build a fortified tower house on his more extensive Bytilsden estate. For this purpose he requires sufficient funds to finance the build, plus the permission of the local overlord or the king to erect a fortified and crenelated dwelling. Sir Walter's father was granted these lands by Edward 1st when the young prince learned of his accession, and they were together on crusade in the holy land. Sir Walter knows he can not go directly to the king without just cause or sponsorship, so he will have to make his request through he overlord of his Bytilsden estate. In the meantime they have to contend with frequent border reiving and occasional plundering raids into Northumberland by Scottish militia. Sir Walter is a self confessed freebooter, when not managing his estates, he hires his services to local lords, using his crown subsidised troopers for personal gain, and unashamedly schools his eldest son Walt into such a lifestyle, to amass wealth for his dream home at Bytilsden. Conscious of the need to make an arrangement with the Scots, as many other local landowners have done, either by paying ransom money to be left alone, or by some other agreement of service, he responds to a request for a meeting from the young pretender to the Scottish throne, Robert Bruce. Accompanied by is son Walt, his squire, and mounted troopers for protection they journey to Galloway for a clandestine meeting in an isolated spot. During the return journey Sir Walter rescues a pretty female tavern slave from abuse, believing her to be a missing relative. This action results in a later attack by a band of robbers, who they capture and hand over to justice. Young Walt is betrothed to a neighbour's beautiful daughter Katherine, but develops an obsession, eagerly reciprocated, with the foundling relative, Freda. Returning to Syhale there is a family outing to celebrate the Michaelmas fest in the priory and town of Tynemouth, where William, a scholar at the priory, is introduced to Freda. The lad is also immediately stricken with love, but holds his piece, watching shyly from the sidelines and learning of his brother's infidelity. The reappearance of a much stronger robber band, intent on exacting a terrible revenge, for what their leader considers were grave injustices, leads to death and injury, followed by a serious decline of the already strained relationship between the family and the Prior of Tynemouth. The story follows the Radulf's fortunes and Walt's journey to manhood, as he begins to accept his responsibilities to his family and his betrothed. This volume ends around the time of the battle of Bannockburn.

When James Gurney's Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time first appeared in 1992, it was immediately hailed as a fully imagined world of the caliber of J. R. R. Tolkien. Gurney's premise — of an undiscovered island where a race of mystical humans co-exists in harmony with intelligent dinosaurs — has been since reiterated over and over in numerous films and by scores of other writers. Now, Calla Editions brings Gurney's spectacular artistry to a new generation in this 20th anniversary edition. Digitally re-rendered from the original transparencies, Gurney's dramatic panoramas of Dinotopia and close-up character studies of its inhabitants — both human and saurian — take on new vitality. And as a tale of high adventure and discovery told as entries and sketches in journal form, Dinotopia presents a shipwrecked visitor's glimpse into an imagined social order, a culture, and even a cooperative interspecies technology that will satisfy lovers of fantasy and science fiction of all persuasions. This edition includes a new Afterword written by author James Gurney as well as a special section of behind-the-scenes studies and maquettes he used in developing his paintings. This signed, numbered edition, limited to 250 copies, includes a deluxe slipcase.
