Format: Paperback
The ongoing feud between the Scottish clans of Murray and Gordon is a story which involves political intriuge, war and bloodshed. Which kinda guarantees that this was always going to be a good read! Potter has organised his topics well, and his strategy of concentrating on the personal feuds between various Lords ensures that the subject always remains personal and exciting. The one qualm I did have was with the rather misleading title. The "Mary Queen of Scots" thing seems to have been thrown in to attract a wider audience. In fact, this book covers a period well into the reign of James VI and beyond, which actually means that Potter is limiting his audience unnecessarily by sticking an inaccurate time period in the title. However, this very minor qualm apart, this book is highly recommended for anyone with an interest in Scottish history, or indeed, anyone who enjoys a tense drama about feuding families.

Format: Paperback
Without question the most provocative assessment of the famed historical feud known among Scottish historians. Potter engages the reader immediately from the exposition of his account allowing the reader to see history unfold on the pages. This is a remarkably rich account of Scottish history surely worth examining.

This is very well written, gripping account of a little known feud between the upstart Earls of Moray (Stewart)and the long-established Earls of Huntly (Gordon), but one that spawned both an extant death portrait- in Darnaway House - and a haunting ballad. A must for all Scottish History buffs like me, and in particular for all Gordons and Stewarts. It moves easily between the academic and the readable, and its apparatus of footnotes and appendices is really useful for further research. Would make a great film.
