Scottish noble William Wallace is living as an outlaw, the leader of a band of brave rebels fighting to free Scotland's people from cruel English invaders. When he discovers that a huge English army is gathering at Stirling Castle, hoping to end the Scottish rebellion forever, Wallace knows that despite the odds stacked against him, he must fight. But how can a small, ragtag group of outlaws win against the might of the English army?

This thrilling episode of Wallace's life, culminating in the legendary Battle of Stirling Bridge, is told through a gripping story and stunning illustrations, both packed with historical detail.
