About the Book

Tales of sex and violence, mystery, murder and yes, even romance, abound in this sweeping saga as the reader is transported from the late seventeenth century to the mid twentieth when the self-confessed bad boy from the boondocks left school to make his own way in the world. The canvas stretches from Banffshire in the North East of Scotland to Blyth in the North East of England, from the Middle East to North America and Australia. In this journey of discovery, the author uncovers some shocking stories and others so amazing they would be dismissed as too fanciful for a work of fiction. You will find a good number of tragic tales that will sadden you but they are leavened by a great many others that will also gladden your heart.

About the Author

The author’s origins and early years is documented within these covers. He went on to find someone who has been keeping him off the primrose path and on the straight and narrow for the past forty-two years. He has two children and five grandchildren to show for it and has decided to call it a day at that. Now happily (and mercifully) spared from having to teach any more English literature and language to generations of young Scots, when he is not at his laptop, he can often be found indulging in a bit of garden taming or preferably quenching his thirst at his local hostelry. But more often than not he will be somewhere else, satisfying his masochistic tendencies for more travel misadventures and possibly gathering more material for another book.
