Format: Kindle Edition
Broadie has specialized in this subject, and in this massive anthology he spares the busy reader from having to buy a dozen books, each by a different writer, in order to get at the source material from the horse's mouth. It is some 800 pages long, and is arranged by subject rather than by author. The golden age of Scotland is here displayed for every serious reader to admire.
