Trips Into Scotland's Dark and Bloody Past
A non fiction book by Douglas Skelton
Scotland is a country with a dark and bloody history, filled with characters who thought nothing of resorting to torture, murder, and treachery. More than a few of its ancient sites are steeped in tales of skullduggery and evil doings - castles and cairns, battle and burial grounds - each with a story to tell. Now, in Devil's Gallop, Douglas Skelton bring Scotland's dark past vividly to life. From dragons to dragoons, warlocks to warfare, he irreverently mixes fact with legend. Within these pages, you'll find murderous monarchs, wicked witches, and nasty nobles. There are tales of cannibalistic humanoid underground dwellers, religious fervor that led to bloody rebellion, and murder, abduction, and villainy. Laced with a liberal dose of gallows humor, Devil's Gallop is an engrossing collection of ghastly tales.
