In Freedom's Cause

by George Alfred Henty

Description:  Although Sir Archibald Forbes is fatherless and a mere youth at the outset of this tale, he readily proves himself to be one of the most accomplished knights in all of Europe throughout the Wars of Scottish Independence. Fighting alongside Sir William Wallace and Robert the Bruce, Archie champions Scotland’s freedom from England against all odds, and refuses to surrender his body or spirit, no matter how dire or seemingly impossible the circumstances may be.
