Adventure (134 Books)


In fiction, the adventurer figure or Picaro may be regarded as a descendant of the knight-errant of Medieval romance. Like the knight, the adventurer roams through episodic encounters, usually involving wealth, romance, or fighting. Unlike the knight, the adventurer was a realistic figure, often lower class or otherwise impoverished, who is forced to make his way to fortune, often by deceit. Also, an adventurer is a roguish hero of low social class who lives by his or her wits in a corrupt society.

The uneven path was treacherous, with just a narrow dip worn in the middle of the floor. A misplaced footing would inevitably lead to a fall, probably serious injury, and certain capture. For over two centuries strong men, bent double under their heavy load, had shuffled and picked their way along this same path. History professor Ja...
