Synopses & Reviews
G. A. Henty was a 19th century novelist, special correspondent and Imperialist. His best-known works are historical adventures. While most of the 122 books he wrote were for children, he also wrote adult novels, non-fiction such as The March to Magdala (1868) and Those Other Animals (1891), short stories for the likes of The Boy's Own Paper and edited the Union Jack, a weekly boys magazine. In Freedom's Cause is the story of the Scottish War of Independence. Henty's hero fought under both Wallace and Bruce. Wallace and Bruce show valor and courage greater than almost any other men in history. Henty has been careful to maintain historical accuracy with respect to public events. In Freedom's Cause: a Story of Wallace and Bruce is crammed full of action and adventure.
