RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 642440943 LA English T1 The forest laird : a tale of William Wallace A1 Whyte, Jack,, PB Viking Canada PP Toronto YR 2010 SN 9780670068463 0670068462 AB In the pre-dawn hours of August 24, 1305 A.D., in London's Smithfield Prison, the outlaw William Wallace, who is to be executed at dawn, is visited by a Scottish priest who has come to hear his last Confession. So begins The Forest Laird, the first book in Jack Whyte's masterful new trilogy. Wallace's story leads the reader through his many lives - as an outlaw and a fugitive, a hero and a patriot, a rebel and a kingmaker. He is the first heroic figure from the Scottish Wars of Independence brought blazingly to life in Jack Whyte's new trilogy, the Guardians, and will be followed by his two compatriots Robert the Bruce, King of Scots; and Sir James Douglas, known as The Black Douglas. Their exploits and escapades, desperate struggles and medieval savagery, high ideals and fierce patriotism are the stuff of legends, and the soul and substance of these epic novels.
