Robbie McLeod has the misfortune to be orphaned at a very young age and is brought up for a while by his heartless uncle. He is also born into a difficult age, being young and idealistic, in Scotland, at the time of the Jacobite Uprising in 1745. Bonnie Prince Charlie has returned to Scotland from his exile in France, to claim the throne which is rightfully his.

The charismatic Prince sweeps through Scotland calling men to arms as he goes, and Robbie joins them. At Culloden the Scots are overwhelmed by the English, and Robbie runs for his life from the field of battle.

Aged just sixteen, he becomes a hunted man.

Robbie hides in a distant and remote glen, and it is there that he makes the best friend of his life, Charlie. Not everyone would be able to make a friend from a wild wolf, but Robbie did. And if you want to know how he did it, you will have to listen to his story…
