John Macnab Summary

John Macnab by John Buchan

The three heroes of John Macnab (1925) have everything to lose if their daring exploit should fail. Each is a leader in his field - one is a barrister and was the Attorney-General, one a Cabinet Minister, one an eminent banker - and each is suffering from an indefinable boredom and lethargy in London. They decide to emulate and extend the exploits of a famous gentleman-poacher in the Scottish Highlands and issue a challenge to three estates: that they will successfully poach from them two stages and a salmon at a given time, signing themselves collectively `John Macnab' . Risking more than reputation, they cure themselves of ennui - but that is only part of the story. In John Macnab Buchan was writing at the height of his powers, taking such a joy in the twists of his story, his richly drawn characters, and the Highland landscape that this has become one of his best-loved adventures. This book is intended for general readers; students of Scottish literature and 20th century adventure story.
