The Hunt For Rob Roy: The Man And The Myths, 2004.
Edinburgh, John Donald Publishers, 2004. 1st Edition. 339pp with 12 colour and 21 b/w illustrations. Hardcover with pictorial dust jacket in very good condition. 240 x 160mm. The name of the heroic Rob Roy (Robert MacGregor 1671 - 1734)is extraordinarily well-known internationally. But much of the popular image recognised today derives from myth, tradition, fiction and the silver screen. A very different figure is revealed in David Stevenson's book. The story unveiled is one of a remarkable life - but not a heroic one. Bookseller Inventory # 000191
