, another great book from the folks at Beebliome Books. Young Alan Macrae turned, unbelieving, to look at the stranger who had been tending this brother. By the light of the fire in the cave he saw a tall, weary-looking figure. “I am Charles Stuart,” the man told him. Bonnie Prince Charlie - in a hillside cave above his own Scottish glen! Alan fell to his knees. And after that surprise, another followed. The Prince asked Alan to lead him and his men westward across the hills, to help them escape from the English armies who had again defeated the brave Scots. Before they set out Prince Charlie took a small silver dirk from the cuff of his coat and handed it to Alan. “A remembrance from me.” Guiding the Prince to safety was only the first of many unexpected and sometimes terrifying events that led Alan Macrae far from home. Across the Scottish and English countryside and finally to London, he associated with criminals and royalty, noblemen and spies. “For loyally helping Bonnie Prince Charlie to flee the Scottish Highlands, young Alan Macrae is rewarded with the Prince’s own garnet-studded silver dagger – the royal dirk. With it Alan hastens to exciting adventures in the atmosphere of mid-eighteenth-century Britain, authentically reproduced here by John and Patricia Beatty. This is a romance – and a splendid one.” The New York Times

    This was an ok read, nothing breathtaking, but fun. It is one of the books my siblings and I chose to read together, a practice we have long had and continue to keep. The basic story is the adventure of a young Scotch lad after he is taken and in risk of being hanged by the English for being suspected of fighting in the cause of Charles the Young Pretender right after the battle of Culloden. The book is in favor of Bonnie Prince Charlie of course, and as much as I love Scotland, I am afraid I am This was an ok read, nothing breathtaking, but fun.

The book is in favor of Bonnie Prince Charlie of course, and as much as I love Scotland, I am afraid I am no big fan of Charles III who of course was a Roman Catholic and a Stuart, both of which did not need to be on any throne! England did not have anything better to side with either though, so I stay out of picking sides. Over all it was good little read.

    I really liked this when I read it as a child. Later I was able to meet and get to know Patricia Beatty.
