About the Author

John Buchan, Baron Tweedsmuir, was a Scottish diplomat, barrister, journalist, historian, poet and novelist. He wrote adventure novels, short-story collections and biographies. His passion for the Scottish countryside is reflected in much of his writing. Buchan's adventure stories are high in romance and are peopled by a large cast of characters. 'Richard Hannay', 'Dickson McCunn' and 'Sir Edward Leithen' are three that reappear several times. Alfred Hitchcock adapted his most famous book 'The Thirty-Nine Steps', featuring Hannay, for the big screen. Born in 1875 in Perth, Buchan was the son of a minister. Childhood holidays were spent in the Borders, for which he had a great love. He was educated at Glasgow University and Brasenose College, Oxford, where he was President of the Union. Called to the Bar in 1901, he became Lord Milner's assistant private secretary in South Africa. By 1907, however, he was working as a publisher with Nelson's. During the First World War Buchan was a correspondent at the Front for 'The Times', as well as being an officer in the Intelligence Corps and advisor to the War Cabinet. Elected as a Conservative Member of Parliament for one of the Scottish Universities' seats in 1927, he was created Baron Tweedsmuir in 1935. From then until his death in 1940 he served as Governor General of Canada, during which time he neverthelss managed to continue writing. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
A novel set during the beginning of the Jamestown Colony, Salute To Adventurers is an enthralling saga about one man's struggle to survive and even find love in a land beset by trade controls with England enforced by pirates, religious strife manifested through a fanatic who stirs Indian tribes to attack settlers, harsh environmental conditions, the unending chores of daily life, and much more. Painting a vivid picture of what it was once like to earn a living in untamed lands, Salute To Adventure is an exciting chronicle featuring conflicts of man vs. nature and man vs. man alike. Action, self-discovery, and the resolve to make the most of one's life distinguish this involving narrative.

John Buchan, a Scotsman, provides us with another good read, starting in Scotland and ending up in the New America, Jamestown. An adventure yarn with Indians, pirates, good guys and bad guys, and a lovely little romance all tossed in together. For a touch of American history including some Indian tales, try this book out. And check on Kindle, there are other John Buchan works available. Kindle is a good source for historical fiction.

I love the way John Buchan begins many of his stories with an interesting experience that appears unrelated to the larger story, but isn't at all. He helps you really understand the "character" of the actors. This one could have easily had a sequel!

Format: Kindle Edition
This was my first John Buchan novel, and I loved it both for its wonderful writing and its rollicking adventure aspect. It is about a rather ordinary young Scotsman who has the misfortune to be considered of the merchant class among the snobs of Tidewater Virginia where he sets up his business. When he gets wind of a terrible threat to the settlements, he lays aside his stolid Scottish inclinations and enters into a series of intrigues, wild schemes, bold and rugged toil and danger that had me laughing at times and biting my nails as I turned pages. Of course there is a beautiful, haughty girl involved; a cast of foppish rivals, and plenty of supporting roles of noble characters and lowlifes. The Scottish lad is irreppressible. I loved him. The writing was so beautiful, I highlighted portions. Will read Buchan again.
