Book Description

8 Sep 2006
From the author of Our Island Story, this history of Scotland from the earliest times is, in the words of H.E. Marshall herself, a story 'woven with the golden threads of romance and glittering with the rubies and sapphires of Fairyland.' Macbeth, William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, Mary Queen of Scots and Bonny Prince Charlie all feature in this stirring tale of a great and proud nation. Told for the benefit of the 'littler people who care for their country's story', this classic history, now back in print, will appeal to everyone whose heart stirs at the sound of the bagpipe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book for Kids 13 April 2010
Format:Hardcover
My father bought me this book (and much of the H.E. Marshall series) when I was a child and I absolutely loved them. I am revisiting this book in particular as an English language teaching aid because of how clearly it tells so many stories. It is written in wonderfully simple language yet it never patronises. A very charming book indeed! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb sweep of Scotland's history 10 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a superb sweep through the long and fascinating history of Scotland without any obvious party political spin.

It is clearly and beautifully written for young readers but its scope is a first rate aide-memoire for older readers whose memory may have grown hazy with time.

It is a matter of great regret that the writer is no longer with us to keep updating it

5.0 out of 5 stars Scotland's history 13 Jun 2014
By Brian
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read h e Marshall' s "our island story" a long time ago and enjoyed it so I decided to try this book. It is a good read and introduction to the subject but does have a decided Victorian attitude to Britain and the empire but I did enjoy it and can recommend it. But you will probably want to follow it up by reading a more up to date work such as the book by Neil Oliver. Recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars History nether goes out of date! 25 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Found the original book in a boot sale, then discovered it had been made into an ebook. It's a fantastic read, as thrilling now as it would have been to boys and girls back in the early 1900's when first written. Reads well and to the point.
