Publisher's Summary

Here's another one of those "They could make it into a movie!" books that keeps you always wanting to hear just one more chapter.

Red Hugh was a true champion for Irish liberty from Queen Elizabeth's constricting reign in the late 1580's and beyond. Hugh's capture, imprisonment, and escape from the Dublin Castle; his triumph over a blizzard and frostbite; his dramatic rescue of his family's castle; his conflict with the evil Captain Leeds; and his inexhaustible love for Ireland make this a wonderful book for the entire family.

You learn an astonishing amount of Irish geography and culture while relishing this true adventure, as well.

fun

My kids loved this story, what they could understand of it at least. Unfortunately the narrator's brogue was very thick and hard to follow, even though we are pretty used to a variety of accents.

great book but hard reading

The book is great. But it is hard to follow due to the narrator's accent.
