Product Description

Review

Dane Love has produced an admirably accessible account of a complex and bloody period. The Scotsman This book is a jewel of short stories about the terrible days in South West Scotland, when it was a crime to worship outwith the recognised church. Dane Love has written his book around the characters of the period, with each tragic story emphasising the terrible cruelty and "man's inhumanity to man". Each short account includes local OS Map references, to allow the reader to visit battle sites and monuments in South West Scotland where all the atrocities were committed. A good informative read.

I have heard some dismiss the Scottish Covenanters as fiction, but this book lists the locations of the monuments and tomb stones so that you can go and see the sources for yourself, one day hopefully I will. The book is also well written and very easy to read. The introduction on the history of the Covenanters is the easiest to read and understand picture of the times that I have seen. This is history made simple and interesting for the modern person.

I read the book as a innocent visitor in Scotland, and one very interested in Scottish history. The terrible years of the "killing times" have been my focus for some time. To my horror, however, I found in this book no more that the repetition of the endless lies and uncorrect informations, such are now widely disproved by true and dispassionate Historians. It is disgraceful, it is a shame to put a stain on the memory of men, long ago in their graves, who cannot speak in their own defense, even when Historians speak for them. I found all the volume extremely biased and in some part merely offensive. Truth is not in the least important to this writer, for I cannot think that he really don't knows what lies he is telling. I can accept it only as a book of stories, for centuries told and rehersed around the fireplace of old Covenanting families in Scotland's western shires. No more than that, and with a flavour of hatred that shocked me.
I suggest, for a correct vision of the Killing Times, the impeccable books by Prof. Sanford Terry about John Grahame of Claverhouse and Covenanting General Leslie.
