Adam of the Road

Adam is an eleven-year-old boy who wants to become like his father, Roger, and to do so he tries to be the best minstrel in England. At the beginning of the story, Adam and his friend Perkin are in St Alban’s Abbey, where they go to an old lady’s house to visit Adam’s dog, Nick. They return to their home at the monastery and go to the roadside to find Roger is coming back from his long journey as a knight’s minstrel. Roger tells Adam that he is going to London to follow in the knight’s train. Adam is allowed to come, but he must hurry because the knight leaves the next day. While on the road, Adam meets Margery, the daughter of the knight, in a beautiful carriage. Soon after, following a night of feasting and partying, Roger tells Adam he lost his warhorse, Bayard, in a bet with another minstrel.

One night, while Roger and Adam are sleeping, another minstrel, Jankin, steals Nick. Adam worries that Jankin will mistreat Nick. When Adam and Roger discover Nick is gone, they chase Jankin across England. When Adam sees Jankin in a crowded marketplace, he pursues him and is separated from Roger. Adam makes friends and with their help finds Nick with Perkin. Roger, Adam and Nick are eventually reunited in Oxford. Adam is offered a place at an Oxford college, but decides to be a minstrel, like his father.
