    The Man on a Donkey by H. F. M. Prescott (gabriel)
    gabriel: Both are strongly written novels dealing with the events surrounding The Pilgrimage of Grace. Buchan's "Blanket of the Dark" is more action-oriented, while Prescott's "Man on a Donkey" is more literary and more closely tied to what is known historically.
