Bonnie Prince Charlie and the '45 is taken from Tales of a Grandfather by Sir Walter Scott, Scotland's immortal poet and writer, author of such classics as Rob Roy and Ivanhoe. Often hailed as his greatest historical work, Tales of a Grandfather shows off Scott's genius for storytelling and his skill at firing the imaginations of readers and listeners of all ages.
Scott's story of the romantic prince in this amended version of his great story is read by Michael Elder, award-winning writer and actor, whose distinguished career includes the reading of classics like Lord Jim, Raffles, and The Wallace.
This is Walter Scott at his best and well read. I think that this book is much better than Ivanhoe or Rob Roy.

Any additional comments?
It was a sad or miguided approach to monarchy, but on the other hand the claim of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite uprising was very nearly successful!
