The noble Sultan, Salah ad-Din, needs more information before he can decide when to attack the crusaders in the castle of Chastellet. In particular, he needs to know if crusader reinforcements might be arriving. That’s how Hamid and the Frankish boy, Richard, find themselves involved in a gripping adventure - riding off on a spying mission to the mountains over the river.
