Booklist Review: "An estimable popular biography of one of the most consequential figures in Scottish history. Robert the Bruce was born in 1274 into a high-ranking noble family with claims to the Scottish throne. In Robert's early manhood, Scotland fell into dismal vassalage to the English crown, and it was he who rescued his homeland. Dedicating his life and family name to Scottish independence, Robert succeeded in becoming king of a renewed Scotland. Scott imparts colorful details in the man's long travail as national liberator. Times of national strife and ultimate national salvation always make good reading for history buffs, and Scott does this particular series of exciting events to a good turn--with energy and style. Bibliography, notes, index. --Brad Hooper"
