A great tale of adventure and resistance to tyranny Jun 15, 2008
Ireland is oppressed by the forces of Elizabeth, the English queen. A few strongholds in the far northwest remain free of English domination, but Elizabeth has her eyes on these as well. In order to subdue Donegal, the English kidnap prince Hugh O'Donnell, heir to his ailing father's castle and lands, and lock him in prison in Dublin.
Red Hugh: Prince of Donegal tells the tale of Hugh's imprisonment, attempts to escape, and his heroic fight against the English. It is engagingly written and is a quick and satisfying read. The characters are very well drawn--from the brave and long-suffering Hugh, to the indomitable Queen Ineen Duive, Hugh's mother; from the brawny and charming MacSweeney to the cruel English captain Leeds.
Originally published in 1957, this new edition of Red Hugh is produced with modern audience in mind. It includes a useful map of northern Ireland which allows the reader to follow the action with ease. The book is well suited for kids aged 10 and up, though I admit to enjoying it myself at over thrice that age. The primary lessons taught are bravery, loyalty to family and country, and perseverance even in seemingly hopeless situations.
Read it but don't buy it Apr 23, 2008
Red Hugh Prince of Donegal is a book about a teenaged boy who was captured by the English and was kept in prison for a long time. The English did not want him to become king because the English wanted Ireland for their own. This book was a fairly good book. Around the first 100 pages were lame but the rest was very good and exciting. There was some love stuff I personally didn't like much. If I were thinking about getting this book I would definitely think twice, check it out from the library and read it first.
Adventure, suspense, a rollicking story! Aug 7, 2003
What a good adventure! The true story of Hugh O'Donnell, who is kidnapped by the English at 15 and must escape home to his castle by the sea, is full of fun and excitement. Hugh makes a great hero; he's funny and brash and eager for a fight and he acts like a teenager. He loves his parents and his home and he carries himself with courage and with honor. As far as I know, the history is sound. It is a fun way to learn a little of Irish history with an action hero who really existed.
An incredible adventure story that actually happened! Jan 29, 2000
This book is extremely well written. It's filled with wit, adventure, and courageous characters. It's about a teen-age prince who goes on an incredible journey from a prison in Dublin where he was being held, to his home in Donegal, to save his province from Engish envaders.Set in a time of war and hatred, this book is so action-packed it's hard to believe it's a true story!
