Beautiful book made even more glorious by N. C. Wyeth's illustrations.

This is the first book I truly fell in love with -- at the age of 15. In the best Victorian tradition, William Wallace is a hero beyond compare (and Mel Gibson, in his violent movie, doesn't come close to capturing the character Jane Porter portrays).

I liked this book. Which is one reason I was disappointed in Braveheart. The movie is a pale shadow of the story here. :)
