Book Summary:

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Three successful but bored friends in their mid-forties decide to turn to poaching. They are Sir Edward Leithen, lawyer, Conservative Member of Parliament (MP), and ex-Attorney General; John Palliser-Yeates, banker and sportsman; and Charles, Earl of Lamancha, former adventurer and present Conservative Cabinet Minister. Under the collective name of 'John Macnab', they set up in the Highland home of Sir Archie Roylance, a disabled war hero who wishes to be a Conservative MP. They issue a challenge to three of Roylance's neighbours: first the Radens, who are an old-established family, about to die out; next, the Bandicotts: an American archaeologist and his son, who are renting a grand estate for the summer; and lastly the Claybodys, vulgar, bekilted nouveaux riches. These neighbours are forewarned that 'John Macnab' will poach a salmon or a stag from their land and return it to them undetected...

Book Summary:

John Sandiman is a librarian at a run-down Glasgow college full of feckless students and overseen by hopeless jobsworths. Fed up with his job, still mourning the cowardly way that Jessica, his ex-girlfriend, dumped him and bemoaning the apathy of the Scots, Sandiman dreams of the time when Caledonia was led by kings. So when Natalie, his colleague and drinking buddy, mentions something called The Book of Deer, he takes no notice. After all, there’s little a librarian can do to change the world. Or is there? What Sandiman did not anticipate was that a fictional character from Scotland’s past would come vibrantly to life, hurling him into a quest to face his own past and change his country’s future. Spanning two millennia from the sea kingdom of Dalriada to the Scottish referendum of 1997, The Legend of John Macnab takes readers behind events they thought they knew and brings them face-to-face with a forgotten icon more splendid than the Stone of Destiny.

Book Summary:

Musaicum Books present to you the collection of the greatest works by John Buchan and his sister Anna Buchan. John is mostly known by his spy thrillers and action novels, and Anna by her vivid portrayal of life and characters of the Scottish small towns and villages. Even though the legacy of the Buchan Family's Pen is very different in genre and theme, they both shared the common writing approach which was to write based on their life experience, to become inspired by the people they knew. Through their stories they brought to life the complex, courageous and tenacious people they got to know. Through their work they left us the testimony of the biggest shift in 20th century - the time of peace, happiness and naivety and the time of peril which destroyed forever their way of life after World War I. Contents: John Buchan: The Thirty-Nine Steps The Three Hostages Huntingtower Castle Gay The Power-House John Macnab Sir Quixote of the Moors John Burnet of Barns A Lost Lady of Old Years The Half-Hearted Salute to Adventurers Midwinter Witch Wood The Free Fishers Memory Hold-the-door – An Autobiography Anna Buchan: Olivia in India The Setons Penny Plain Ann and Her Mother Pink Sugar The Proper Place The Day of Small Things Priorsford Taken by the Hand Jane's Parlour The House That Is Our Own Unforgettable, Unforgotten – A Memoir
