Highly Recommended! A great cast of characters, all lovingly crafted and memorable. The book is filled with drama, adventure and humor not taking itself too seriously while set in one of the most interesting times of England ! Sir Walter Scott was born in Edinburgh in 1771. Educated for the law, he obtained the office of sheriff-depute of Selkirkshire in 1799 and in 1806 the office of clerk of session, a post whose duties he fulfilled for some twenty-five years. His lifelong interest in Scottish antiquity and the ballads which recorded Scottish history led him to try his hand at narrative poems of adventure and action. Fantastic books a must Read!
