- 640 pages
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.
