This copy of the 1817 classic is a like-new paperback edition.

From the back cover: "In rich prose and vivid description, Rob Roy follows the adventures of a businessman's son, Frank Osbaldistone, who falls out of favor with his father and is sent to stay in Scotland. Innocent, English, and Protestant, Frank is intrigued by this wild and noble land. He finds himself drawn to the powerful, enigmatic figure of Rob Roy, who alongside his fiercely, passionate wife, Helen, fights for justice and dignity for the Scottish people. Twists of plot, Rob Roy's cunning escapes, uprisings against English oppressors, and Frank's forbidden love for a Catholic girl, Diana, combine with superb period detail to make Rob Roy an absorbing tale - and an incomparable portrait of the haunted hightlands, a great hero, and a glorious Sottish past."

Really gave this one a try but couldn't muddle through all the "old English" prose. Sending out in a book box maybe someone else will enjoy this book. Thanks for sending it my way. The cover with Liam Neeson was really great :-D
