When Charles-I came to the throne in 1625 he began to make changes in the way Scotland was run, including the introduction of a new prayer book. He believed that a king was given his position by God and that no one had the right to question his actions, so when protests were made and a document known as 'The National Covenant' was drawn up, cruel punishments were inflicted on the protesters who became known as the 'Covenanters'. This brand-new title in the "Scotties Series" explains the complex topic of the Covenanters to children - it will also be a useful introduction to the subject for adults. "Scotties Books" contain a wealth of interesting facts, stimulating activities, websites and suggestions for places to visit.

Review:

' ... Claire Watts leads us carefully through a complex, but fascinating, slice of Scotland's history and shows us its legacy. ... This is a superb addition to the Scotties series, ideal for all ages!' Scotsman ' ... In addition to a factual account - written in concise and clear, but engaging language that compels the reader to continue - the work would be equally appreciated by adults keen to learn more about this chapter of Scotland's history, ... The book would be useful in a classroom for anyone teaching or following a curriculum on 17th century Scottish history ... ' Life and Work ' ... Claire Watts has done an exceptionally fine job in presenting the sometimes disparate strands of the story in a way that is comprehensible, and retainable by the modern reader. And while the book is aimed at a younger audience, such is the complexity of what took place that it serves as an excellent starting point for anyone of any age wanting to gain an understanding of the period.' Undiscovered Scotland website ' ... The book would be useful in a classroom for anyone teaching or following a curriculum on seventeenth-century Scottish history or as an introduction to the period for adults with no knowledge of this period in Scotland's history.' Life and Work ' ... One of the real strengths to these Scottie publications is the exemplification of events through primary and secondary sources, and images of associated sites. I thoroughly enjoyed this little book.' Scottish Association of Teachers of History --Scottish Association of Teachers of History
