About this title


A stirring 15th-century tale of seafaring hero Andrew Wood, loyal supporter of King James III. This is a swashbuckling yarn set against the rugged climate of Scottish history.

From the Publisher:

As a boy, Andrew Wood¹s greatest ambition was to be a merchant-trader like his father before him. He was also determined to avenge his father, who had been murdered by English pirates. Andrew¹s chance came when he was asked to join in a trading venture with the Baltic states. During the voyage, his ship was attacked, and Andrew¹s courage during this and subsequent skirmishes led to his national renown as a pirate slayer. At the invitation of King James III, Wood amassed captured vessels to create the nucleus of a national fleet; such was his success that James eventually promoted him to Lord High Admiral of Scotland. Ultimately, Admiral Wood¹s bold defense of Scottish waters was to incur the dangerous wrath of King Henry VII of England. In The Admiral, Nigel Tranter tells the story of the humble laird who became one of Scotland¹s most famous sailors and valued negotiators ‹ a man who greatly aided his nation¹s cause in a time of international unrest.

Nigel Tranter is one of Scotland¹s best-loved writers. He brought the history of his country vividly to life in nearly a hundred stirring novels.
