Format: Hardcover
James Hunter lays before the reader an inspiring account of the life of James Of The Glen, an unsung hero. Besides his use of documented historical source materials, he makes use of local folklore to give a more rounded portrait of James Stewart. Stewart is revealed as the foster father of the historical Alan Breck. Breck was later incorporated into Robert Lewis Stevenson's best selling novel Kidnapped, in which he rescues David Balfour, the novel's main character. Hunter reveals the barbarity visited upon those Highland Scots who had remained loyal to the deposed Stuart king, James VII. The German prince, The Duke of Cumberland, and a number of his officers are accurately depicted as cruel tyrants. This historical work exposes the genocidal policy of the British State, in regard to the Highland clans. It is shocking, that Scottish school children have been purposely denied a full knowledge of these events, events that could be described as the Scottish holocaust. I thoroughly recommend this excellent book. Anthony Cooper (co-author William Wallace Robin Hood Revealed)

If you can pick up a book and that book sends you out to find things, research them and discover what was previously hidden to you then it gets the thumbs up from me.

I'm in Edinburgh, while the Highlands and the areas mentioned in this book are not exactly on my doorstep they are a mere 3 or 4 hours away. So, there are still signs and landmarks around to be seen today that the characters in this tragic tale saw 250 years ago.

I love RLS' Kidnapped and Catriona so inevitably, they led me to this book. It's a great read and when you're scrabbling about amongst the trees or rocks looking for signs of James Stewart and his past it makes it so much more exciting.

This book explores the Jacobite Rebellion, The reasons for Culloden the bloodbath and subsequent slaughter, by Butcher Cumberland aided by lowland Scots.
It also covers the Appin murder of Colin Campbell an agent for the English government.
The sacrificial lamb, James Stewart, a Culloden veteran who was hanged after a shabby trial (he wasn't the murderer) but it appeased the frightened English. To learn more, buy and read this book, you won't be disappointed.
