(From the publisher):
When Ursula, an apothecary's daughter and the possessor of a book on the healing arts, is accused of being a witch and sentenced to burn at the stake, she is given one chance to save herself: She must march in the People's Crusade to the holy city of Jerusalem. Along with her ailing father and her friend Bruno, an apprentice stonemason, Ursula embarks on a perilous journey with thousands of other pilgrims. Encountering enemies from both outside and within the camp, Ursula summons all her knowledge and courage to cope with the many unforeseen dangers. As the besieged Crusaders go forth, they become like a pack of hungry wolves, pillaging and plundering in their attempts to stave off the disasters that threaten them at every turn.
