Our Island Story

Our Island Story by Henrietta Elizabeth Marshall
By: (1867-1941)

Our Island Story was first published in 1905 and became an instant classic. Beginning with the Romans and following the triumphs and foibles of the good, not so good and the downright despicable figures of history; we are treated to a dazzling montage of kings, queens, barons, knights, explorers, movers and shakers that have played a key role in the history of England. Marshall freely mixes folk tale with historical fact and in so doing paints a very vivid picture of the past in a style reminiscent of all that is finest in the children’s story telling tradition.This is the first section of that work and will carry you from the time when Tacitus first sang the praises of Britannica to his Roman readers up to the vicious and bloodthirsty confusion that is the War of the Roses (about 1500 years).

I've read the first half of this book to my kids and my reading left a lot to be desired. I was so glad to find this book here. I saved it to my computer and then burned it to a CD. We now listen to it in the car and the kids LOVE it!!! Great job in every part of this book! I do hope you can/will do more!
