Amazon.com description: Product Description: From the author of Treasure Island and Kidnapped comes The Black Arrow, an adventure classic set in England during the War of the Roses. The swashbuckling story tells of a young man betrayed by his brutal guardian and forced to seek the help of a secret society. Dick Shelton must locate John Amend-All, leader of the mysterious fellowship of the Black Arrow and his guardian's sworn enemy. Shelton successfully infiltrates the Black Arrow and gets swept up into the greater conflict surrounding them all.

The Black Arrow has been adapted for film and television several times, often very loosely. Adaptations include a 1911 film short starring Charles Ogle, a 1948 film starring Louis Hayward, a 1985 film starring Oliver Reed and Benedict Taylor, a Soviet film Chyornaya strela 1985, a 1951 two-part British TV serial starring Denis Quilley, a 1968 seven-part Italian TV production entitled La freccia nera, a 1988 animated adaptation by Burbank Films Australia, and a popular British TV series running from 1972-1975.
