John Buchan (1875-1940) was born in Perth, Scotland and educated at Oxford where he published five books and won several awards, including one for poetry. He went on to be a barrister, a member of parliament, a soldier, a publisher, a historical biographer, and - in 1935 - he became the Govenor-General of Canada. Today he is best remembered as the author of his perennially popular adventure novels. Sir John Keegan is a world-renowned historian of the First World War. His books include The First World War (Pimlico), A History of Warfare (Pimlico), and a biography of Winston Churchill (Weidenfeld & Nicholson, November 2003).
"It is the dimension of the mysterious that makes Buchan's writing so unfailingly compelling." It is the dimension of the mysterious that makes Buchan's writing so unfailingly compelling. (John Keegan, from the introduction)
