In Freedom's Cause: A Story of Wallace and Bruce

Cover
Christian Liberty Press, 2007 - 310 Seiten
At the end of the thirteenth 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.

LibraryThing Review

Nutzerbericht  - Andrew-theQM - LibraryThing

This book written in 1885 covered the story of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce through a knight who was around both men. This held up well and overall I did enjoy it, although dragged in one or two places. I would read other historical fiction books by this author. Vollständige Rezension lesen
