John Macnab Summary

John Macnab: Authorised Edition by John Buchan

In 1925, John Buchan published his second most famous novel, John Macnab; three high-flying men - a barrister, a cabinet minister and a banker - are suffering from boredom. They concoct a plan to cure it. They inform three Scottish estates that they will poach from each two stags and a salmon in a given time. They sign collectively as 'John McNab' and await the responses. This novel is a light interlude within the "Leithen Stories" series - an evocative look at the hunting, shooting and fishing lifestyle in Highland Scotland.

John Macnab Reviews

'Perhaps [Buchan's] peculiarly Scottish combination of Romanticism and Calvinism - daring living and high thinking - is due to return to fashion'

* The Independent Magazine *
