A superbly illustrated journey through the landscape and events of the life of the iconic Scottish knight who was brought to life in the film Braveheart For nearly 700 years debate has raged over the true nature of William Wallace and his role in Scotland's turbulent history—was he the Braveheart of Blind Harry's legendary account, the bold, but savage, hero of the Scottish wars, or, as some contemporary chroniclers attested, was he nothing but a villainous thief and vagrant fugitive? This book draws on a wide range of contemporary and modern sources to look behind the figure of legend to find Wallace's true character. It traces Wallace's journey from his modest upbringing in south-west Scotland and his first victory as a "guerilla" leader and military commander at Stirling Bridge to his painful death seven years later, including his "invasion" of Northumberland and Cumberland. This is an essential traveling companion for a journey through Wallace's kingdom and to learn more about the myth and the man.

A deconstruction of the national biography and mythology of William Wallace. Freed from the historian's bedrock of empiricism by a lack of corroborative sources, the biography of this short-lived late-medieval patriot has long been incorporated into the ideology of nationalism.

Über das Suchen und Finden des Glücks Martha hat ihr ganzes Leben im Bahnhof von Liverpool verbracht. Als Baby kam sie hier an – in einem Koffer. Sechzehn Jahre ist das her, und immer noch wartet Martha im Fundbüro darauf, dass endlich jemand kommt, um sie abzuholen. Der Bahnhof und all die besonderen Menschen, denen sie hier begegnet, sind Marthas ganze Welt: Cafébetreiberin Elisabeth, George, der immer eine römische Legionärsuniform trägt, und der Mann mit dem Koffer, der vielleicht den Beatles gehört hat. Bis eines Tages ein Brief das Fundbüro erreicht: Der Absender behauptet zu wissen, wer Martha wirklich ist. Und so macht Martha sich auf die Suche nach ihrer eigenen Geschichte, einer Geschichte voller Rätsel, aber auch voller Magie und Glück.
