(endpaper maps) "This is a novel of the American Revolution and more particularly of its regional origins and first conflicts. It faithfully and dramatically restores one of the most romantic but least known episodes in our early history. For this is the American story of Flora MacDonald, whose Scots valor and feminine compassion once saved the fugitive Bonnie Prince Charlie. Though the famous thrills of that episode in the Hebrides are freshly illuminated here, the story centers in the North Carolina sequel -- an almost lost chapter of American history which is even more moving and more revealing of Flora's nobility and brave resolve. As always in an Inglis Fletcher novel, action, adventure and romance abound." This is one of the author's "Carolina series" of historical novels, comprising a dozen books (published from 1942 through 1964) that cumulatively covered two centuries of North Carolina history, from 1585 to 1789. [Note that this is NOT the book club edition; it's the stated "First Edition," in an unclipped jacket with the original price ($3.95).] . (Inventory #: 14425)
