In 1925, John Buchan published his second most famous novel, John Macnab; three high-flying men - a barrister, a cabinet minister and a banker - are suffering from boredom.

This novel is a light interlude within the "Leithen Stories" series - an evocative look at the hunting, shooting and fishing lifestyle in Highland Scotland.

John Macnab Reviews


'Perhaps [Buchan's] peculiarly Scottish combination of Romanticism and Calvinism - daring living and high thinking - is due to return to fashion'

* The Independent Magazine *
