The actual events were that much like what you would expect in a movie -- very exciting. All the other events were exciting like that, but the rest of the book is more like a historical book. And there are so very many people with the same names -- and alternately called by the place where they are chief or whatever -- that [...]


    2. Interesting biography of the woman who took Bonnie Prince Charlie "over the sea to sky", and discusses her life both before and after that historic event.
