Our Island Story (B&W)

Our Island Story (B&W)

Description

This beloved history book traces the story of England from the myth of Brutus right through to the end of World War 1 in a delightful, engaging style that has made it a favorite of readers for many years.

A childhood favorite of C.S. Lewis, he says in The Four Loves- "The stories are best when they are handed on and accepted as stories. I do not mean by this that they should be handed on as mere fictions (some of them are after all true). But the emphasis should be on the tale as such, on the picture which fires the imagination, the example that strengthens the will... When I was a child I had a book full of coloured pictures called Our Island Story. That title has always seemed to me to strike exactly the right note."

Presented with all the original images in black & white this edition of Our Island Story also includes the extra chapters not found in the first edition updating the reader on more of England's story.
