TO CATCH A KING: Charles II's Great Escape
In January 1649, King Charles I was beheaded in London outside his palace of Whitehall. When his eldest son, Charles returned to England in 1651 to fight for his throne, he would find himself on the run with Cromwell's soldiers on his tail. Once restored to the throne, he told the tale of his escapades. Here, Spencer uses the accounts of many to retell this epic adventure. 16 pages of illustrations, some color.
