This 1906 book is another great classic which was written at a time when British-or in this case-Scottish people were proud of their history and heritage. Originally designed for younger readers, Scotland Story's readability gained it a far wider audience. Marshall gathers together a gripping collection of incredible stories which tell the story of Scotland from the time of the Picts and Scots through to the Union with England and slightly beyond. Readers of all ages will be gripped by the high drama, love stories, battles, sacrifices and efforts of the Scottish people to assert their identity, and ward off foreign interference. This is a book which carries a message for all European people today. This version is an accurate reproduction of the original with all errors which mar other editions removed.

A miniature masterpiece. --Stephen Fry
Astonishingly accurate, quite brilliant! --David Starkey
Extraordinarily evocative to a child's imagination. --Lady Antonia Fraser
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.'
