Lion of Rora (brief review)

Lion of Rora - Christos Gage, Ruth Gage, Jackie Lewis

This is the story of how Joshua Janavel led the defense of Rorà against the Savoyard assault. A heavily-researched project, the Gages use the research not to bore the reader, but rather to tell a robust and engaging story that captivates and entertains. Jackie Lewis channels the spirit of Braveheart and Rob Roy with illustrations that are rebellious and rallying. This is a fun book -- and illuminates a piece of world history that is often forgotten in the history books.
