Publisher's Summary

Plundered from Scotland by Edward I in 1296, the Stone of Destiny lay beneath the Coronation Chair in Westminster Abbey for 700 years. For centuries, rumour and speculation have surrounded the origins of this legendary symbol of royal power. Was this the real Stone, or merely a 13th century fake? Is the Stone that finally returned to Scotland in 1996, and now rests within the ancient walls of Edinburgh castle, just a lump of sandstone, hastily quarried at Scone to decieve the 13th-century English invaders, while the true Scottish Coronation Stone was spirited away to a secret hiding place somewhere in Perthshire? Abridged by Andrew Dallmeyer, The Stone is Nigel Tranter's thrilling tale of the discovery and the adventures of a group of Scottish patriots as they try to ensure that it remains in Scotland forever.
