Mightier than the Sword by Alexander Tait is a historical novel about Scottish nationhood. It tells the dramatic
story of William Wallace, the greatest warrior and martyr for Scotland’s ancient liberty. It uncovers the fascinating
history of the symbol which has for over 700 years represented the nation’s heroic struggle for freedom.
It provides a revealing record of the many chapters in the Scots’ relentless pursuit of self-determination, and,
through the personal experience of the author, it illuminates what Scottish nationalism means in our own era.
