This volume contains Walter Scott's historical novel, "Rob Roy" (first published in 1817). Frank Osbaldistone, the narrator, is the son of an English merchant who embarks on a trip from the north of England to the Scottish Highlands in order to collect some money taken from his father. Set to the backdrop of the 1715 Jacobite Rising, this exciting and interesting novel will appeal to those with an interest in Scottish history. It is certainly not to be missed by fans and collectors of Scott's seminal work. Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, poet, and playwright - considered to be the first truly international English-language author. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
