Despite pursuing a very successful career in public life, culminating in the Governor-Generalship of Canada, John Buchan (1875-1940) was a prolific author, writing 30 novels and over 60 non-fiction works. He is best remembered for his fast-paced adventure novels and spy thrillers.
Young and dissolute, Francis Birkenshaw carouses around Edinburgh caring nothing for the Jacobite Rebellion; but lust for riches and adventure draws him in to Bonnie Prince Charlie's ill-fated campaign. This new edition has an introduction by Buchan enthusiast James Robertson.
