Product Description

Used Book in Good Condition

A superbly illustrated journey through the landscape and events of the life of the iconic Scottish knight who was
brought to life in the film Braveheart

For nearly 700 years debate has raged over the true nature of William Wallace and his role in Scotland's turbulent
history—was he the Braveheart of Blind Harry's legendary account, the bold, but savage, hero of the Scottish wars, or,
as some contemporary chroniclers attested, was he nothing but a villainous thief and vagrant fugitive? This book draws
on a wide range of contemporary and modern sources to look behind the figure of legend to find Wallace's true
character. It traces Wallace's journey from his modest upbringing in south-west Scotland and his first victory as a
"guerilla" leader and military commander at Stirling Bridge to his painful death seven years later, including his
"invasion" of Northumberland and Cumberland. This is an essential traveling companion for a journey through Wallace's
kingdom and to learn more about the myth and the man.
