A comprehensive study of Scotland presented in the most fun way ever!
You’ll feel as if you’ve really been there! A kid’s mystery story (written from a Biblical perspective) and an Adventure Book filled with tons of activities, learning and fun stuff to do.
Welcome to my country of Scotland. My name is SAUNDRA and I am Scottish. My Mum and Dad are Scottish as well. My Dad plays the bagpipes in a pipe band and they own a smal shop that sells tartan kilts, berets, sashes and covers for bagpipe bags. My Mum creates all our merchandise on her sewing machine. She’s a very talented seam-stress. I love Highland dancing and have danced in many local competitions. I wear my kilt when I dance. The tartan has a history that goes back many generations in our family. I love listening to my grandmother tell stories about life back then – battles between clans on the rugged moors, brave men and women – and how we won our freedom as a nation. Have you heard of heroes like Robert the Bruce and William Wallace? This country is ﬁlled with mystery – the misty moors, the ancient castles, and of course, the Loch Ness Monster! You’ll have fun learning about about Scottish Clan Chiefs, Jacobite symbols, swords stashed away in secret places and most exciting of all – you’ll join in the hunt for the missing honours of Scotland!
A Clash of Swords in Scotland story
An old-fashioned villain in an ancient castle… brought down by a boy! Rome closed his eyes. He heard the clash of steel against steel and felt the jerk of his arm as it struggled to support the huge weight of the steel sword with its sharp gleaming blade. Crash! Rome staggered backwards almost knocked off his feet by the blow. He lifted his sword again to defend himself as the enemy’s horse reared up next to him. He knew the next blow would be fatal! It was now or never. Rome raised his sword and struck with all his might.
