Sir Walter Scott--who invented the historical novel--is still the writer to whom we turn when we seek the undiluted pleasures of narrative romance. His Rob Roy (1817) is a rousing tale of skulduggery and highway robbery, villainy and nobility, treasonous plots and dramatic escapes--and young love. From London to the North of England to the Scottish Highlands, it follows the unjustly banished young merchant's son Francis as he strives to out-maneuver the unscrupulous adventurer plotting to destroy him--and allies himself with the cunning, dangerous, and dashing outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor in a heroic effort to regain his rightful place and win the hand of the girl he loves.
