Our island story : a history of Britain for boys and girls, from the Romans to Queen Victoria

Much loved by generations of children, this is a classic children's history of Britain from the Romans to the death of Queen Victoria. First published in 1905, H E Marshall's beautifully written narrative fell out of print after decades of popularity. But one hundred years after it was first published, "Our Island Story", one of the most popular and inspirational books of its time, has become a modern day bestseller. Galore Park Publishing, in association with Civitas, reissued this classic children's history book over fifty years after it was last in print. The response from the public and the media was terrific and a staggering 20,000 copies were sold within the first week of publication. Such an incredible response to this book is unsurprising to H E Marshall fans the world over. Why not discover the delights of H E Marshall for yourself?
