Rob Roy MacGregor is the romantic outlaw who comes alive in Sir Walter Scott's classic epic of the passions and struggles of the Scottish border lands. In rich prose and vivid description, Rob Roy follows the adventures of 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, with his 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 combined with superb period detail make this an incomparable portrait of the highlands, a great hero, and a glorious Scottish past.
