This 1911 work, by one of the best-known newspapermen and writers of the day, is a lyrical and engrossing account of the peoples and places of the northern reaches of the Sceptered Isle, from its Celtic and Pictish tribal origins, through the Roman occupation, and to the Jacobite uprising of the 18th century. With a sly, dry wit that will enthrall today's readers, author Andrew Lang delves into the decadence and corruption of the medieval kings and brings to thrilling life the intrigues and conspiracies that have shaped the true history of a much-fabled nation. AUTHOR BIO: Scottish journalist and author ANDREW LANG (1844-1912), the son of the sheriff-clerk of rural Selkirkshire, was educated at Edinburgh Academy, the Univerisites of St. Andrews and Glasgow, and Balliol College, Oxford. A contemporary and friend of Robert Louis Stevenson, he produced a stunning variety and number of volumes, including books of poetry, novels, children's books, histories, and biographies, as well as criticism, essays, scholarly works of anthropology, and translations of classical literature.
