Here's another one of those "They could make it into a movie!" books that keeps you always wanting to hear just one more chapter.
Red Hugh was a true champion for Irish liberty from Queen Elizabeth's constricting reign in the late 1580's and beyond. Hugh's capture, imprisonment, and escape from the Dublin Castle; his triumph over a blizzard and frostbite; his dramatic rescue of his family's castle; his conflict with the evil Captain Leeds; and his inexhaustible love for Ireland make this a wonderful book for the entire family.
You learn an astonishing amount of Irish geography and culture while relishing this true adventure, as well.
