The Islesman by Nigel TranterPaperback
This is the story of Angus Og MacDonald, Lord of the Isles. The semi-independent prince of the Hebrides and much of the West Highland mainland, he was a worthy representative of a notable line, living in dramatic and exciting times for Scotland, England, and Ireland. He took his part in it all, an active supporter of Robert the Bruce, encouraging trade, seeking to heal the feuding propensities of his people, allying the Isles with Orkney and Shetland and Norway, and travelling as far as the Baltic.
One of Scotland's best-loved authors, Nigel Tranter wrote over ninety novels on Scottish history. He died at the age of ninety on 9 January 2000.
