A favorite among Scott's "Waverley" books, Rob Roy follows the adventures of Francis, a businessman's son who falls out of favor with his father and is sent to stay in the Scottish Highlands. At the house of his uncle, he meets Rashleigh, the greedy and malicious youngest son, and Diana Vernon, Rashleigh's beautiful young cousin. Seeing that Diana is attracted to Francis, Rashleigh determines to destroy him. What Rashleigh does not realize is that Francis will seek the help of Rob Roy MacGregor, a powerful and enigmatic outlaw who courageously fights for justice and dignity for the Scottish people.Strong plot and superb period detail combine to make Rob Roy a captivating tale and an extraordinary portrait of the haunted highlands and the glorious Scottish past.
"When I think of Rob Roy, I am impatient with all other novels." (Robert Louis Stevenson)
"This early 19th-century classic...is alive and well in this production, elegant in sound and style. Frederick Davidson's voice masterfully moves from brogue to dialect, from Gaelic to English. He succeeds at the resonance of narrator Francis, the commanding voice of Rob Roy, the growl of the wicked Rashleigh, and the beautiful lilt of Diana Vernon. This recording, accordingly, 'thrills the blood.'" (AudioFile)
