In Freedom's Cause

A Story of Wallace and Bruce

by G. A. Henty
Trade Paperback, 258 pages
Current Retail Price: $12.75

Historical Setting: Scotland, Britain, 1314 A. D.

In this story the author relates the stirring tale of the Scottish War for Independence. The extraordinary valor and personal prowess of Wallace and Bruce rival the deeds of the mythical heroes of chivalry, and indeed at one time Wallace was ranked with these legendary personages. The research of modern historians has shown, however, that he was a living, breathing man—and a valiant champion. The hero of the tale fought under both Wallace and Bruce, and while the strictest historical accuracy has been maintained with respect to public events, the work is full of narrow escapes and wild adventure.

Twelve illustrations by Gordon Browne.
