Fiction, Historical fiction

This novel begins the heroic story of Rob Roy MacGregor, and his battle to ensure his clan's survival in the highlands of Scotland after they support the doomed Old Pretender at the beginning of the eighteenth century.

At the beginning of the eighteenth century, one of the most exciting and romantic periods of British history, the famous Rob Roy MacGregor and his gallant nephew Gregor, a fierce young higlander loyal to the cause, led the MacGregor clan into battle against the English Army.
Outlawed and landless, they still clung to Glengyle, one small remaining corner of their ancient territories, and held fast in their loyalty to the Stuart King over the water. But in the midst of the political struggle young Gregor still managed to find time to pay court to Mary Hamilton, a lovely girl who at first rejected his rough Highland ways...
