Summary "Boudica's rebellion in the 1st century A.D. is one of the most dramatic - and important - events in the history of Britain; the story of how one British woman challenged the might of the Roman Empire. This account of her life is one of aggression, courage, violence, humiliation and clashing cultures meeting head-on."--Jacket
