This is the true story of a man-hunt; an entire army is in pursuit of a king. For six weeks Oliver Cromwell’s army chased the brave and debonair Charles II through the west and south-west of England, in a series of adventures which outdo the most exciting tales of make-believe. But because over fifty people were willing the risk their lives and ignore the fortune in gold which would result from his capture, he managed to get away to France and safety, and nine years later returned in triumph to reward those who had saved him.
