9780007449866: Rob Roy (Collins Classics)

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘Caution comes too late when we are in the midst of evils.’

Set just before the Jacobite Rising in 1715, Scott drew upon the political and economic struggles leading up to the rebellion and the tumultuous history of the Highlands in his classic adventure novel Rob Roy. Despite the book’s title, Frank Osbaldistone is the protagonist, travelling through England and the Scottish Highlands to collect a debt owed to his father by his cousin Rashleigh. On his journey he comes across the mysterious and striking Rob Roy, the infamous yet hunted outlaw. A story about justice, love and the harsh realities of 18th-century Highland life, Scott’s work is still viewed as the ultimate historical adventure novel.

Review:

The classics from Real Reads are always an incredibly readable and enjoyable experience and education for children to grandparents. This classic tale from Scotland features Frank who hates working in the office of his father and persuades his cousin Rashleigh to change places. But missing papers which must be found lead Frank into intrigue, mystery and danger with the famous outlaw Rob Roy, ...or is he an outlaw? You will eagerly read to the end to learn which side the infamous Rob Roy is truly serving. Very good and the illustrations help everyone remember the characters and events.

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.
