About the Author

John Buchan's adventure stories, The Thirty-Nine Steps and Greenmantle, have long held a place as classics of their kind. Only now is his historical fiction, which he himself regarded as his finest work, receiving its full due.


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 He explores different themes ... He expounds theories through a wide variety of subjects but all the while there is the basic ingredient of telling a good story so the reader can enjoy their sheer entertainment value. Yorkshire Gazette and Herald John Buchan was the first to realise the enormous dramatic value of adventure in familiar suroundings happening to unadventurous men. Graham Greene
