Red Hugh, Prince of Donegal by Hendry Peart

Red Hugh—Prince of Donegal

By Robert T. Reilly
Level 7

My son enjoyed this book, but it was not his favorite book from the Bethlehem Books series. Still, it is highly recommended. The official description reads: “Red Hugh was a true champion for Irish liberty from Queen Elizabeth’s constricting reign in the late 1580s and beyond. Hugh’s capture, imprisonment, and escape from the Dublin Castle, his triumph over a blizzard and frostbite, his dramatic rescue of his family’s castle, his conflict with the evil Captain Leeds, and his inexhaustible love for Ireland make this a wonderful read-aloud book for the entire family. You learn an astonishing amount of Irish geography and culture while relishing this true adventure, as well.”
