Product Description

From Glencoe to Stirling, the third volume in Sir Walter Scott's story of his beloved Scotland, recounts the momentous events that took place between the time of the Reformation and the Jacobite rising. With an emphasis on the great chivalric age of that period, these chapters demonstrate the power of the nation to shape its own destiny and to steer toward the realization of Scotland's freedom.These stories proved to be the most intimate, most accessible, and most dramatic of all the tales Scott ever presented to his readers. From William Wallace and Robert the Bruce to John Knox and Mary Queen of Scots, from the subjugation of Rob Roy and the rising of the Jacobites to the crusade of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the quest of the Duke of Cumberland, these Tales of a Scottish Grandfather cover the entire romantic story of Scotland as a grandfather would want to tell it to his grandchildren, for Scott specifically addressed these stories to his ten-year-old grandson.Scott focuses all of his narrative power in these tales for the sake of love - love of family, love of place, and love of legacy. The history of Scotland is the richer for it. 288 pages, indexed.
