Description:

Over 70 tales from the annals of the Killing Times when Bonnie Dundee carried out King Charles II s edict by hunting down and persecuting the Covenanters throughout Southern and Central Scotland. Many of these have been drawn from little-known sources and verbal records handed down from generation to generation. These include: the murder of John Brown of Priesthill by Bonnie Dundee ; the Battle of Drumclog; the Wigtown Martyrs; the shooting of John Hunter of Tweedsmuir; the Pentland Rising at Dalry, 1666 and the execution of James White of Fenwick. This comprehensive and accessible volume of a largely ignored period of Scottish history will be of great worth to Scots everywhere and will be a required reader for history students.
