Tales of the Clan Chiefs

Tales of the Clan Chiefs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here are riveting tales of stolen brides, drowned wives, severed heads, Jacobite fugitives, pirates, fairies, feuds, torture, bloodshed, battle, and much more. Tales of the Clan Chiefs is a collection of 40 fascinating stories associated with the chiefs of the major clans in Scotland. The tales are based on historical events and date from the earliest years of the clans, right up to relatively modern times, when the Highland clearances ended centuries of culture and kinship. There are stories of castles being attacked by the enemy, chiefs who lived in exile, clan battles, and more. Illustrated with the author's own line drawings, Tales of the Clan Chiefs is essential reading for anyone interested in the ancient clans of Scotland and in Scottish history in general.
