Eleven tales explore the early history of Scotland’s constant struggle for freedom from the English
Scottish history is full of tales of blood and sacrifice, great heroes and fierce warriors, and above all, the constant battle between the Scots and the Brits for Scotland’s independence. For hundreds of years, Scotland and England teetered between war, peace, and unity, and being Scottish royalty could bring as much danger as it could power and riches.
The legendary stories included in Claymore and Kilt follow the rise and fall of the great Scottish kings of old. With tales including those of the sons of Cathmor, who vowed to avenge their father’s murder, the strange riddle that saved a lord’s life, and the king who loved only one thing more than his beautiful dog, this collection gives a voice to the complicated history of Scottish kings and castles.
