Very Good. After the disaster of Culloden in April 1746, Charles Edward Stuart was a fugitive in Scotland for six months. Hounded by his foes, sheltered by his devoted Highland friends, Bonnie Prince Charlie evaded capture and sailed for France in September of that grim year. This is the story of his flight, and of the wild, beautiful country he claimed, in vain, as his birthright. -and-This is an account, by a world-famous Scottish author, of the greatest manhunt in history. The time is August, 1746: the quarry none other than Bonnie Prince Charlie, fleeing for his life after the disastrous battle of Culloden, the last pitched battle to be fought on British soil. The story, told almost day by day and using journals and other contemporary sources, is one of superb bravery, cold treachery, desperate moonlight escapes, hiding out in caves and pig-styes with the most meagre of supplies, and of the love and devotion of a few faithful Highlanders who gladly offered up their lives for the Prince from over the water. Here, in words and pictures, is the most spell-binding book about Scotland ever published.
