Incredible tale of adventure
By Badger Master
The Highlands of Scotland are so vividly described I felt like I was walking beside David Balfour and Alan Brech. The plot twists and turns it's way dodging redcoats and Campbell's all the while the two hero's growing more inseparable. Fantastic read highly recommend.
