A timely and vivid look at Scotland s long and difficult road to nationhood, re-exploring some cherished myths and unearthing a wealth of fascinating new detail.Magnus Magnusson s starting point is Sir Walter Scott s classic version of Scotland s history, `Tales of a Grandfather (1827-29), which has moulded the views of generations of Scottish schoolchildren.
