about

Our Island Story was first published in 1905 and became an instant classic. Beginning with the Romans and following the triumphs and foibles of the good, not so good and the downright despicable figures of history; we are treated to a dazzling montage of kings, queens, barons, knights, explorers, movers and shakers that have played a key role in the history of England. Marshall freely mixes folk tale with historical fact and in so doing paints a very vivid picture of the past in a style reminiscent of all that is finest in the children’s story telling tradition.This is the first section of that work and will carry you from the time when Tacitus first sang the praises of Britannica to his Roman readers up to the vicious and bloodthirsty confusion that is the War of the Roses (about 1500 years).

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ads in book This book has ads in it for other public domain ebooks. I'm seeking this book out as a children's book, and the advertised ebooks had illustrations with a lot of skin on them. Just FYI for anyone who wouldn't want that in a kids' book.
