Feuds, Forays and Rebellions is a history of the Highland Clans over the hundred and fifty years after the MacDonalds, Lords of the Isles, forfeited the Earldom of Ross in 1475. It describes the fragmentation of Clan Donald and its vassal kindreds as they resisted the impact of central authority, by James IV and his successors. Only by service to the Crown did the other leading families in the Highlands and Western Isles flourish and prosper until James VI of Scotland imposed apeace of sorts after the Union of the Crowns in 1603. Key Features *Clear but comprehensive account of a complex period in Highland history *Charts the fortunes of all the major Highland clans *Sufficiently detailed and authoritative to be used as a valuable reference book *Written in a lucid and entertaining style
