Overview

Edited and introduced by Andrew Lownie. 'The short story is the real form' John Buchan This is the first ever complete collection of all Buchan's shorter Scottish fiction. Set largely in his beloved Borders, these stories and novellas show the full range and depth of Buchan's writing. Featuring shepherds, poachers, gamekeepers and drovers, they are worlds away from the tales of aristocratic adventure with which he is so often associated. Shot through with characters and places he returned to in his full-length fiction, the Buchan that emerges from this collection is a very different and much more complex writer than he is often held to be. 'John Buchan was the first to realise the enormous dramatic value of adventure in familiar surroundings happening to unadventurous men.' Graham Greene
