Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, Paperback (February 2011)
The Yankee, suddenly transported from his native nineteenth-century America to the sleepy sixth-century Britain of King Arthur and the Round Table, vows brashly to boss the whole country inside of three weeks. And so he does. Emerging as The Boss, he embarks on an ambitious plan to modernize Camelot - with unexpected results.
Connecticut Yankee at King Arthur's Court, Paperback (June 1976)» View all books by Daniel Carter Beard
When Connecticut mechanic and foreman Hank Morgan is knocked unconscious, he wakes not to the familiar scenes of nineteenth-century America but to the bewildering sights and sounds of sixth-century Camelot. This is a darkly comic consideration of the nature of human nature and society.
