Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the end of the 13th century, the oppressed people of Scotland rebelled under the leadership of William Wallace and Robert Bruce. Time has burnished the feats of these great heroes to mythic proportions, but Wallace and Bruce were real people. This gripping tale of courage, loyalty, and ingenuity recounts their deeds within an accurate historical context. Readers join their company alongside a fictional protagonist, young Archie Forbes, whose estates have been wrongfully confiscated. Archie forms a group of scouts for the Scottish army to fight alongside the legendary chieftains (who were memorably portrayed in the film Braveheart) for their country's independence.

At the end of the 13th century, the people of Scotland suffered cruelty under the heavy hand of their English ruler, Edward Longshanks.

Time has burnished the feats of these great Scots heroes to mythic proportions, but both were real people, and this gripping tale of courage, loyalty, and ingenuity places its fictional protagonist alongside Wallace and Bruce within an accurate historical context. The extreme popularity of Mel Gibson's portrayal of Wallace in the film Braveheart ensures an eager audience for this inspiring story.
