Our Island Story
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
'This is not a history lesson, but a story-book'. In this, the most famous of her many history books for children, Henrietta Elizabeth Marshall (1867-1941) took a narrative approach and included traditional legends as 'part of our island story'. The result is a lively, memorable treatment of British history from the Roman conquest to the death of Queen Victoria. First published in 1905, the book remains a great introduction to history. Age 8+
