Here are tales about war-time code breaking, cannibalism, and swashbuckling adventure during the times of Bonnie Prince Charlie. They vie with subtler stories, with a more intimate perspective, about the vagaries of human nature, politics, fishing, and poaching, set against the landscape of the lowland Scottish countryside where Buchan spent his youth.
What members say
Many unique British & Scottish stories
A set of 8 short stories on everything from World War I to poachers in a Scottish glenn.... worth the time if you like Buchan's longer books.
