|Plot Summary of William Wallace: Braveheart|
|"Sir William Wallace is one of history's greatest heroes, rising from peasantry in the small village of Ellerslie to lead the Scottish against the brutal rule of the English in order to gain independence. But he is also one of history's greatest enigmas, with facts blurred or overlooked turning him into somewhat of a myth. James Mackay becomes a sort of historical detective to create this definitive biography of the first Guardian of Scotland. "
