9781908373236: Tales of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites (Luath Storyteller)

Jacobite influences are often found in Scottish culture. Indeed, many of their stories and legends are still told today in some form or another. Tales of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites is an imaginative look into the story of the Jacobites who fought to bring the Stuart kings back to Scotland. McHardy examines the Jacobite tales to create a vivid historical picture of Scotland's Stuart past.

About the Author:

STUART McHARDY is a writer, occasional broadcaster, and storyteller. Having been actively involved in many aspects of Scottish culture throughout his adult life – music, poetry, language, history, folklore – he has been resident in Edinburgh for over a quarter of a century. Although he has held some illustrious positions including Director of the Scots Language Resource Centre in Perth and President of the Pictish Arts Society, McHardy is probably proudest of having been a member of the Vigil for a Scottish Parliament. Often to be found in the bookshops, libraries and tea-rooms of Edinburgh, he lives near the city centre with the lovely (and ever-tolerant) Sandra and they have one son, Roderick.
