From the Inside Flap:

First published in 1817, "Rob Roy was not only a resounding success but also one of the first historical novels of its time. Full of swashbuckling action and intrigue, it tells the story of Frank Osbaldistone, the son of a wealthy British businessman, who travels to Scotland, where he is drawn into the lawless world of the fiercely noble outlaw Robert Roy MacGregor. Osbaldistone and Rob Roy, along with the witty Diane Vernon, embark on numerous adventures during the height of the Jacobite uprising. With sweeping descriptions of Scottish landscapes and vivid characterizations, "Rob Roy is an epic tale of heroism set against the backdrop of true Scottish history.

About the Author:

Scottish writer Sir Walter Scott helped to popularise the historical novel as a literary genre, paving the way for others with his much loved succession of hugely popular books, including Ivanhoe, Rob Roy and Waverly.
