Editorial Reviews

Review

'Buchan knew that you can't buck the consequences of your actions, and that your life is what you make of it. Perhaps his peculiarly Scottish combination of Romanticism and Calvinism - daring living and high thinking - is due to return to fashion.' - The Independent Magazine --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

John Buchan, one of Alfred Hitchcock's favorite writers, was a Scottish diplomat, barrister, journalist, historian, poet and novelist. He published nearly 30 novels and seven collections of short stories. He was born in Perth, an eldest son, and studied at Glasgow and Oxford. In 1901 he became a barrister of the Middle Temple and a private secretary to the High Commissioner for South Africa. In 1907 he married Susan Charlotte Grosvenor and they subsequently had four children. After spells as a war correspondent, Lloyd George's Director of Information and Conservative MP, Buchan moved to Canada in 1935. He served as Governor General there until his death in 1940. Sir Thomas Dalyell Loch of The Binns, 11th Baronet—better known as Tam Dalyell—was an MP in the House of Commons from 1962 to 2005, first for West Lothian and then for Linlithgow. He became Father of the House after the 2001 General Election, was a Member of the European Parliament from 1975 to 1979 and a member of the Labour National Executive from 1986 to 1987 for the Campaign group. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

If you have enjoyed the depth and detail of any of Buchans novels, you will certainly enjoy John Burnet of barns, a novel to `submerge` yourself in, one of his `better` ones.

My wife is a descendant of the Burnett's of Barnes. We ordered the four hardbacks you had available for Christmas presents. Each had been removed from a library in excellent condition and each was received timely from different vendors. Thanks
