The Story of Scotland by Nigel G Tranter ( )
17 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Scotland's story cannot be told merely in terms of documentary evidence, for this would be to neglect an integral part of the nation's heritage. The legends, myths, stories and memories handed down from generation to generation must be added to the bare bones of factual record if the character of the country is to be truly revealed. Nigel Tranter was able to combine the two with a masterly hand, expertly weaving the colourful threads of folklore into the fabric of historical fact. Tranter was impeccably qualified to tell the story of Scotland, having written many books detailing the nation's r

Rob Roy Macgregor by Nigel G Tranter ( Book )
9 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rob Roy MacGregor’s name and reputation stride through late-17th- and early 18th-century Scottish history and he is probably the nation’s best-known historical figure next to Robert the Bruce, William Wallace and Bonnie Prince Charlie. Along with those three, Rob Roy’s portrayal in book and film has created a figure that does not really tally with the man that Nigel Tranter believes was much more than a mere Trossachs-based cattle thief, blackmailer, outlaw and protection racketeer. That he stole cattle, forced lairds to pay money to ensure their cattle were safe and lived on

Hope endures by Nigel G Tranter ( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This historical novel was the last novel completed by Nigel Tranter before his death in 2000. It tells the story of Thomas Hope, who counseled three kings through a tumultuous period in Scottish history. The son of an Edinburgh merchant, Thomas Hope had a spectacular start to his career. At the age of 17, before he had finished his legal education, he traveled to France to triumph in his first court case, catching the attention of his young king, James VI. It was the beginning of a life at the heart of Scotland's government. From James VI to Cromwell, John Knox to Montrose, Lord Advocate Hope was a rock-steady presence in a swiftly changing world. He witnessed the reigns of Charles I and Charles II, the founding of the East India Company, affairs of state and affairs of the heart, matters political and diplomatic. No dry-as-dust lawyer, he was a friend as well as an advisor to the three kings he served
