Long ago, in the time of dragons, there lived a knight in rusty armor, a dragon with a bad cough, and a damsel in distress who didn't want to be rescued … Sir Gilford wants to be worthy of his knighthood. Even more, he wants to be fully accepted by his foster family, the Sitwells. So when they need gold, Gilford volunteers to win treasure from a ferocious dragon. The creature agrees to help Gilford, but he must first perform some tasks. These tasks are made harder by his cowardly horse, kidnap attempts by another clan, and even by the Sitwells trying to help. On his last, biggest and most difficult challenge to win the dragon's gold, Gilford must make a difficult choice. Should he do what others want him to do? Or do what he believes is right and risk never achieving his greatest dream?
