For Freedom David R Ross, The 'Biker Historian', goes On The Trail of William Wallace again to investigate his last days, the events that led up to his death, and their repercussions through Scottish history.

He ties Wallace's life and death to the issues of patriotism and Scottish nationality over the last seven hundred years, and identifies Wallace as a 'Scottish Martyr' who died for freedom and identity in the country he loved.

On The Trail of Bonnie Prince Charlie is the story of the Young Pretender.

Born in Italy, grandson of James VII, at a time when the German house of Hanover was on the throne, his father was regarded by many as the rightful king. Bonnie Prince Charlie's campaign to retake the throne in his father's name changed the fate of Scotland.

The Jacobite movement was responsible for the '45 Uprising, one of the most decisive times in Scottish history. The suffering following the battle of Culloden in 1746 still evokes emotion.

Charles' own journey after Culloden is well known: hiding in the heather, escaping to Skye with Flora MacDonald.

Little is known of his return to London in 1750 incognito, where he converted to Protestantism (he re-converted to Catholicism before he died and is buried in the Vatican).

He was often unwelcome in Europe after the failure of the uprising and came to hate any mention of Scotland's lost chances. Please allow 2 weeks for delivery

Over the years we've had all sorts of people including historians (who should know better) claiming that William Wallace was born in Ayrshire and not Renfrewshire!!

Highly recomended for those who believe in an Ayrshire birthplace.

Endorsed by David R Ross & Duncan Fenton.
