The King and the Spider
This book is not yet available to buy, but the publication date is listed below.
Robert the Bruce, king of Scotland, has escaped to lonely exile in a secret cave after a crushing defeat in battle. There, in his darkest moments, he spots a tiny spider trying, and failing, to spin its web.
Inspired by the spiders determination, the rebel king returns to the fight for Scottish freedom -- and victory at the Battle of Bannockburn.
The much-loved legend of the king and the spider, and Robert the Bruces victory in the Scottish Wars of Independence, are beautifully brought to life in historically detailed illustrations.
