Synopsis

Scotland A Very Peculiar History by Fiona MacDonald

The Cherished Library is a new series, designed to look and feel like fine editions from a cemetery of forgotten books. The ornate key to this labrynthine lair of lost literature has been handed down from generation to generation of the Cherish family. Just before his death in 2008, the late Professor Cherish ordered that these books be made available to the public. Scotland: A Very Peculiar History, Volume 1 is a lively and informative account of the vibrant history of Scotland, from its earliest inhabitants up to the beginnings of Stewart rule. It celebrates the cultural achievements of the Scottish, giving an up-to-date and objective account of the nation's origins and history, with 'No added Haggis!' Fun and informative inserts and illustrations accompany the main text. It includes fact boxes and index.
