The Hunt For Rob Roy

Bookspeed

The first new biography of Rob Roy for thirty years, and based on much recently discovered material, this is a radical revisioning which challenges the popular view. He was outlawed only after trying to swindle his creditors, supplied intelligence to the government against the Jacobites, and lost the only duel he is known to have fought. Yet he survived tenaciously against the odds, his charm made him a legend in his own lifetime, and his story, though far from heroic, is nonetheless striking, dramatic and human.
