GEORGE MACPHERSON Long ago in ancient Skye, a queen is born in a storm... From the depths of Scottish folklore emerges Sgiath, an ancient warrior queen of Skye.

Follow her incredible journey as she turns from ordinary village girl to leader of a great army of warriors, conquering her opponents and bringing education to all. Magic and myth interweave with history in this epic tale of ancient oral storytelling that is inspirational for our modern times.
