The story of Scotland by Nigel G Tranter( Book )

19 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 390 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.
