Much loved by generations of children, Our Island Story is a classic children's history of Britain from the Romans to the death of Queen Victoria. First published in 1905, H. E. Marshall's beautifully written narrative fell out of print after decades of popularity. But one hundred years after it was first published, "Our Island Story", one of the most popular and inspirational books of its time, has become a modern day bestseller. Galore Park Publishing, in association with Civitas, reissued this classic children's history book over fifty years after it was last in print. The response from the public and the media was terrific and a staggering 20,000 copies were sold within the first week of publication. Such an incredible response to this book is unsurprising to H. E. Marshall fans the world over.

About the Author:
A widely read author of history books for children a century ago, Henrietta Elizabeth Marshall is now enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Her most famous work, Our Island Story, A History of England for Boys and Girls, was first published in 1905, followed quickly by Scotland’s Story in 1906 and Our Empire Story in 1908. She also authored A History of France, A History of Germany, This Country of Ours, and English Literature for Boys and Girls. In addition, she penned The Story of Napoleon and The Story of Cromwell for the "Children’s Heroes" series and contributed several volumes to the highly acclaimed "Told to the Children" series.
From AudioFile:
Not only will young listeners hear the fascinating story of Britain, they will also experience Marshall's Edwardian-style, since this history was written in 1905. Myth and reality are combined, substantially adding to the history commonly found in school books. Narrators Anna Bentinck and Daniel Philpott are spot-on as they continually switch accents and move from text to quotation in this fast-paced history. Bentinck presents the comprehensive introduction, and then she and Philpott take up the story, never failing to keep listeners' attention. Also included is a booklet that helpfully lists chapters, historical periods, and the placement of material on each CD. Listening to this unique presentation is a rewarding experience. S.G.B.
