Rob Roy Summary

Rob Roy by Walter Scott

When young Francis Osbaldistone discovers that his vicious and scheming cousin Rashleigh has designs both on his father's business and his beloved Diana Vernon, he turns in desperation to Rob Roy for help. Chieftain of the MacGregor clan, Rob Roy is a brave and fearless man, able and cunning. But he is also an outlaw with a price on his head, and as he and Francis join forces to pursue Rashleigh, he is constantly aware that he, too, is being pursued - and could be captured at any moment. Set on the eve of the 1715 Jacobite uprising, Rob Roy brilliantly evokes a Scotland on the verge of rebellion, blending historical fact and a novelist's imagination to create an incomparable portrait of intrigue, rivalry and romance.

About Walter Scott

Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832) was born and educated in Edinburgh. From 1799 until his death he was Sheriff of Selkirkshire. Scott's poetry brought him great acclaim, but he rejected the Poet Laureateship in 1813 and turned towards ficiton, devising a new form that was to dominate the early 19th century novel. He became a baronet in 1820.
