Scottish Covenanter Stories by Dane Love
Book DescriptionFifty 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.
