" Chronicling the life of William Wallace and Robert Bruce, this is a brilliant work on the history of Scotland. The events of the life and struggle of these two men are narrated in great detail. Their heroic fight against British domination is recorded with utmost care, so as they may not be rendered the whims of the author."
I trust not, my son; but I fear that it will be long before we shake off the English yoke. Our nobles are for the most part of Norman blood; very many are barons of England; and so great are the jealousies among them that no general effort against England will be possible. No, if Scotland is ever to be freed, it will be by a mighty rising of the common people, and even then the struggle between the commons of Scotland and the whole force of England aided by the feudal power of all the great Scotch nobles, would be well nigh hopeless.
