(From the publisher):
Thousands of tourists every year go north to experience for themselves the magical beauty of 'the Rob Roy country.' Well over a century has passed since Scott laid down his pen after completing the Waverley novels, and the glow he created of a past existing within his own memory remains undimmed. The romance of the old clans burns brightest in Rob Roy
, and here also is to be found Scott's most romantic heroine, Die Vernon.
The old chieftain's exploits and banditry were carried into comparatively modern times, and from the moment our hero rides for the north, Scott has us in his narrative grip. There is the journey to Aberfoyle, the night in the clachan alehouse, the fight at the lakeside, the Bailie's meeting with Helen MacGregor, Rob Roy's escape, the meeting with Diana on the darkening heath -- all of these adventures are the very stuff of romance.
