THE HAWK THAT DARE NOT HUNT BY DAY Feb 21, 2001
This book is about William Tyndale getting Bibles to England in the sixteenth century. William Tyndale is a preacher who wants to bring Bibles over to England that everyone can buy. He accomplishes this by smuggling the Bibles he has translated and printed over in a ship called the Black Pearl. This story mainly focuses on the captain of the ship and his nephew who smuggle the Bibles for Tyndale. This story was slow to get going but was okay by the end. I would recommend it to people who like historical fiction.
Action, mystery, and suspense! Dec 23, 1999
The Hawk that Dare Not Hunt By Day is an excellent book which I would love to read again. It is full of suspense and mystery. It is even based around somebody's actual life, the life of William Tyndale, the person who first translated The New Testament into English. The book is by Scott O'Dell, the writer of The Island of the Blue Dolphins and many other children's novels.
Tom Barton and his Uncle Jack are the owners, as well as First Mate and Captain, of a ship called the Black Pearl. As a smuggler, Tom is always looking for a cargo that will turn a good profit. Tom meets a man named William Tyndale who is translating the Bible from traditional Latin into English, something that could get him hanged as a heretic. Tyndale is the Hawk that Dare Not Hunt by Day. He lives a life of constant danger, always hiding from the King's officials. He drifts from place to place until his own best friend betrays him.
This book is great and I'm surprised that it didn't get some prestigious award. I would love to read it again. The book has a lot of interesting vocabulary, and I would recommend this for ages 11 & up. This book has something to like in it for everyone, action, mystery, and suspense.
